"I've never heard of a person successfully running a marathon, without using mental strength; the journey to wellness in your life is a marathon."
ClinicianFest brings together mental health professionals from various disciplines who share a common mission: to advance mental health and wellness practices, enhance mental resilience, and raise awareness about mental health treatment. This collective effort celebrates the strength of sharing knowledge and experiences, ultimately driving innovation in mental healthcare to benefit our communities.
The conference theme for this year, "Shades of Wellness: Celebrating Fundamentals While Embracing Diversity and Innovation," perfectly aligned with our mission to offer culturally sensitive mental health support. Through our presentation, "NORMALIZE IT: Supporting Trauma Healing in Caribbean and African Descent Communities by Recognizing Culture's Impact on Well-being," we delved deep into the intricate relationship between culture and mental well-being.
As we move forward, we remain committed to our mission of providing culturally sensitive mental health support. ClinicianFest 2023 reaffirmed our belief that embracing cultural diversity is not just an option but a necessity in the mental health field.
