Together We Rise – Mental Health Symposium

January 27, 2024 | 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

About the Conference

It’s no secret that mental health concerns are an increasingly prevalent part of modern life. In the wake of the pandemic and in response to the pressures of social media and other societal concerns, more and more people need access to quality mental health care to address their needs.

Yet considerable barriers to receiving good services exist, such as lack of access to resources, shortages in well-trained mental health professionals, and continuing stigmatization of symptoms. These challenges require a solution-focused approach to increase our community’s effectiveness in response to the current mental health crisis.

That’s why Houston Christian University is sponsoring Together We Rise, a mental health symposium designed to equip today’s aspiring mental health professionals with the tools they need now. Together We Rise will ensure that clinicians can Rise Up themselves, Reach Out to advocate, and Restore and Respond to our clients’ urgent needs with excellent interventions.

We invite you to join eminent professionals in the mental health field for this incredible symposium by registering below! CEU’s will be offered for mental health professionals, including CEU’s for ethics, and CPE’s will be offered for educators.

Keynote Speaker: Patricia Daza, Ph.D., ABPP
Associate Professor and Director of Psychology at the Menninger Clinic
