Our nation’s state of mental health is being challenged. The impact is being felt at home, in health care, education, business, and policy. It’s time to come together, pool our ideas, and change the course of the mental health epidemic spreading across our communities today. Be a part of this bold initiative by joining educators, health professionals, government officials, religious leaders, policy makers, and law enforcement authorities from across the country as we put aside our differences and unite to build a mental health model that can rise to the challenges of the present and future at the National Summit for Mental Health and Mental Fitness: Practical Solutions for Creating a Culture of Peace in Denver July 23 - 24.
