Description

Faith & Health: Interfaith Workshop and Awards Luncheon

The Faith & Health Collaborative invites you to the 2020 Faith & Health Interfaith Workshop and Awards Luncheon.

This year, in addition to announcing the 2020 Faith-Based Health Equity Awardees, we are partnering with community-based organizations in the substance abuse, addiction and mental health fields to provide a workshop that explores the impact of addiction on communities of color, the intersection of mental health + substance abuse + faith, and understanding the "addictive brain" while on the road to recovery.

Why Should I Attend? If you have not attended a Faith & Health Collaborative event in the past years, you are in for a treat! In addition to the information provided during the workshop, don't miss the opportunity to network with local leaders, gather educational information from other local mental health and wellness vendors and establish action items for how to address health in your congregation and the community.
