Past Conferences

For those navigating and treating anxiety across diverse faith-based practices.

We are excited to present our second Faith and OCD Conference! Many individuals living with a mental health condition first seek assistance from their faith leaders prior to a mental health provider. This conference specifically addresses the needs of this diverse community, spanning all faiths, ethnicities, and races. We will bring awareness about effective treatments, support to those impacted by a mental health condition, and identify ways to best work together.
