We’d like to invite you to our annual When Mental Illness Hits Home Conference coming up on August 23, 2024, from 9 am – 4 pm at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, IL. This conference is open to mental health professionals, family members and friends who journey with people struggling with mental illness. The title of this year’s conference is RECOVERING FAMILY WELLNESS: REBUILDING RELATIONSHIPS. Our first speaker is Ky Miller, who will outline attachment and emotionally-focused concepts that can be used to help repair relational ruptures, thus enhancing relationships – and each individual’s well-being. Jessica Donaldson will then provide an overview of practices that will help restore relationships by addressing the conflict when harm has occurred so that healing can take place. After lunch, Liesl Wingert will help attendees gain a greater awareness of the family interrelational system of relationships when addiction and mental health issues are present, as well offer as an overview of some available resources that can assist the entire family with the healing process.

Our final presenter is Jo McGuire, who will share her harrowing family journey of marijuana dependence, mental illness and recovery. We will explore what healthy recovery looks like and what tools are available for families seeking a return to wellness. We hope you will join us.
