About this Event

In celebration of World Mental Health Day, the Well for Life, LLC in collaboration with the Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg is excited to host the inaugural Equity and Behavioral Health Summit on October 10, 2019.

World Mental Health Day was first celebrated October 10, 1992, an initiative led by the World Federation for Mental Health. The day is designed to champion mental health education, awareness, and advocacy to reduce mental health stigma. Since then, mental health advocates and professionals alike have dedicated this day for celebrating mental health and well-being.

The Equity and Behavioral Health Summit will provide an opportunity to explore the strategies to addressing behavioral health equity in Pinellas County and similar communities across the United States. This summit is Thursday, October 10, 2019 (World Mental Health Day) from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm and a Saturday Summit Series October 12, 2019 from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm.

This summit will highlight the latest thinking, innovations, and collaborations around the collective practice of achieving health equity as it relates to mental health and substance use. This year, our attendees will include community members, teachers/educators, students, wellness professionals, clergy & lay leaders, crime survivors, and more from across the country.
