Twin Cities Jewish Community 22nd Annual Conference on Mental Health

October 23, 2022
9:30 a.m.  – 3 p.m.

This year marks the 22nd year of the Twin Cities Jewish Community Annual Conference on Mental Health. The conference is produced by Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Minneapolis (JFCS) and Jewish Family Services of St. Paul (JFS) partners in improving mental health access, understanding, and education in the community.

With generous support from community donors and partners, the conference as always continues to be Free and open to everyone.

The visible and invisible impacts on mental health are vast and require profound attention, support, and advocacy. In planning for this conference, we think of a kaleidoscope representing the emotions, perspectives, ideas, challenges, and hopefully a sign of unity. The kaleidoscope as an art form that speaks to the eyes and minds of the beholder.

Our keynote speaker will be Nate Cannon, BA, MFA, CDP, a nationally recognized speaker, and author. Nate will share his experience as a transgender man living well in recovery with both a mental health diagnosis and an unseen physical disability. Breakout sessions this year will focus on youth, suicidality, addiction, finding balance, and combating loneliness and isolation.
