Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Recent studies show women are up to 40 percent more likely than men to develop mental health conditions, and between 1999 and 2014, the suicide rate for women increased by more than 45 percent. Women of color, LGBTQ folks, and other marginalized communities are even more likely to experience risk factors that can lead to mental health issues, as well as lack access to quality care. What happens when these issues are misunderstood or go untreated? How do we break down stigmas and long-held beliefs about who deals with mental health challenges and who doesn’t? This panel of experts will explore what we need to do to transform how we think and talk about women’s mental health.
