Event description:

The Community Alliance for Healthy Minds (CAHM) is dedicated to helping individuals and families lead happier, healthier lives through improved mental wellness. The 2017 CAHM Forum, entitled From Hopelessness to Hope & Healing, is co-hosted by the California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) Institute for Palliative Care. It is an all-day event designed to provide education, support, resources, skill building and stigma-reduction to the community.

We recognize the need to integrate the mind, body and spirit to achieve balance and improve quality of life. The Forum attracts individuals who have mental illness, substance abuse issues, and chronic illness, and their families, in addition to those who have lost loved ones to suicide; and we also invites anyone interested in learning more about mental wellness and recovery in a shame-free atmosphere that promotes healthy living, symptom reduction, behavioral management, and overall life satisfaction.

The day includes a nationally-renowned keynote speaker, repeating breakout sessions on a variety of topics, lunch, a resource fair, music and a lot of opportunities for people to connect, respect, and enjoy one another through a host of lived experience.

Keynote speaker: Dr. Mark S. Komrad -  http://cahmsd.org/keynote-speaker/#

The Forum is a day of optimism where we share stories and our collective wisdom to help one another see that hope and healing are possible and viable paths for today, tomorrow and the future ahead.
