Virtual Event, May 21st, 2021, with the International OCD Foundation in Boston, MA. Free. Navigating Anxiety in Diverse Faith-Based Communities is the The International OCD Foundation’s first Faith and Mental Health Conference. This event was started out of a recognition that many individuals living with a mental health condition first seek assistance from their faith leaders prior to a mental health provider.
* The conference has been created specifically to address the needs of this diverse community, spanning all faiths, ethnicities, and races.
* The Foundation hopes to help bring awareness about effective treatments, support to those impacted by a mental health condition, and ways to best work together.
* Join in on a collaborative conversation between faith leaders, mental health providers, and the OCD community.
Individuals and Families: Those with lived experience of anxiety and OCD will hear from faith leaders and mental health professionals about how to build a supportive network for treatment and recovery. They will be given the opportunity to hear messages of hope by those impacted by OCD and related disorders.
Faith Leaders: Faith leaders will hear from those with lived experience of faith-related anxiety and OCD, and learn how to recognize the symptoms of these disorders. Furthermore, they will learn what options are available to those seeking treatment and how they can help in recovery plans.
Mental Health Professionals: Mental health providers will be introduced to a diverse group of faith-based leaders to better understand Anxiety and OCD and how it intersects with a client’s faith practices. Mental health providers will have an opportunity to learn how to adapt their practice by integrating faith leaders and families when developing a treatment plan.
* Some talks will also be interpreted in Spanish. Languages used are marked next to the session title.
