Public Education

Our professional continuing education events teach participants new skills and help them stay informed about mental health research and best-practice information.

Outreach to the faith community through our annual Caring for Your Congregation’s Mental Health educates gatekeepers and provides resources/tools they can use when they suspect a person might be struggling with a mental illness.

The Association’s annual Zarrow Mental Health Symposium is considered one of the premier behavioral health conferences in the region, and provides a unique opportunity to bring together behavioral health and medical professionals, alongside advocates, individuals impacted by mental illness and/or addictions, and their family members. Additionally, the Association is considered a go-to media resource for information pertaining to a variety of issues related to mental illness and homelessness, and as such, is able to help shape public perceptions and address stigma.
