About this Event
The “Pathways to Hope” conference, part of NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, FaithNet programs, aims to bring individuals, faith communities, providers, NAMI members and other behavioral health stakeholders together to reduce the stigma of mental illness.
We aspire to activate and engage communities at the grassroots level to provide support for people impacted by mental health issues; and help people find local resources for better mental health care. The conference will be held August 26-27, 2022, and hosted by NAMI Pinellas County.
