The Association hosts a variety of events and conferences throughout the year to spread awareness about mental health, ending homelessness, reforming the criminal justice system, and celebrate the people we know, love and serve.
Check out the lineup below and see which ones you’ll attend!
Each week in May, we’ll be sharing stories and hosting events that emphasize that we cannot — and will not — stop making the message that mental illness, homelessness, suicide and criminal justice reform are issues TOO BIG TO IGNORE!

Faith & Mental Health, formerly known as Caring for Your Congregation’s Mental Health, was started in 2002 as a gatekeeper educational outreach under the NIMH Outreach Partner Program. This workshop in Tulsa and Oklahoma City is designed to educate clergy, lay leaders, chaplains and other leaders within area faith communities on important issues related to the mental health of their congregations. In addition to helping break down the stigma surrounding mental illness, the purpose is also to provide science-based information along with resources.
