Please Help Spread the Word: Peer-Centered Mental Health Conference

The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA), the nation’s leading patient-directed organization focusing on the most prevalent mental illnesses, is hosting our national conference, “PEER CONNECTIONS,” this May 20 – 22, 2011, in Houston, Texas. This three-day conference offers individuals living with depression or bipolar disorder and their family members, friends and health care providers the opportunity to “connect” with education, inspiration, and the support of others who’ve “been there.”

We’re asking for your help to spread the word about this weekend of hope, help, and support, so that everyone involved with mental health issues has the opportunity to participate in this affordable, information-packed event.

This peer-led and peer-centered conference will feature over 16 presentations from leading experts in the mental health community. It will also offer inspiring messages of hope from distinguished keynote speakers including award-winning actress and advocate Patty Duke and poet and actress Laura Burke, whose evocative visual poem, “sssss,” serves as an inspiration for anyone living with, or affected by, mental illness. For all of the exciting events happening at this one-of-a-kind conference, please visit www.DBSAlliance.org/Conference2011.

DBSA would be most grateful if you would consider including a notice/blurb about our national conference in your print or e-mail newsletter and/or on your website home page or in your events and/or calendar section.
