As we celebrate the 10 year anniversary of this program, we welcome Heidi Hoffman and Fr. Salvadore Gonzalez, OMI, as our keynote speakers.  Both of these speakers will be sharing their stories of substance abuse and mental illness.

Often people with a mental illness will try to control their symptoms with either alcohol or illegal drugs. Both Heidi and Fr. Salvadore will talk about their journeys with mental illness and how they tried to medicate themselves before reaching out for professional help and their experiences now in recovery.

Breakout sessions will include talks on Hope and Help for Mental Illness, Non-Compliance in taking Medication and Help Through the Justice System.

When Mental Illness Hits Home is a unique conference for friends and family members who journey with people with mental illness and for professionals in the mental health field.
