NAMI Maine’s Beyond the Basics in Suicide Prevention Conference - Friday, April 12, 2019

NAMI Maine is excited to announce that Dr. Sally Spencer-Thomas is our keynote speaker.

Dr. Sally wears many hats: clinical psychologist, mental health advocate, faculty member, researcher, and suicide loss survivor. She has diligently earned her reputation in social change by helping to establish many mental health efforts, including Man Therapy and National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention.

 

The theme for this year’s conference is Building Resiliency Through Effective Interventions. Several breakout sessions will focus on different methods of intervention. We are pleased to announce that the conference offers both a clinical and a non-clinical track. Several sessions will include CME credits and CEUs for professionals who attend.

 

In the late afternoon, there will be mini breakout sessions focusing on building your self-resiliency, supporting self-care, and preventing burn out.

 

NAMI Maine is excited to announce that early bird registration for the Beyond the Basics in Suicide Prevention Conference 2019 is available at a reduced cost of $65 until March 1st. For more information, click here.
