NAMI Vermont invites you to join us for our
2021 Pathways to Wellness Conference
A VIRTUAL EVENT!
Wednesday, May 19, 2021
8:30 am – 4:00 pm

This annual event is a great opportunity for peers, advocates, family members, and mental health professionals to gather together and learn about resources and services that are available, hear lived experience stories and raise our voices against the stigma surrounding mental illness.

And this year, we are offering CEU credits for no additional cost! The conference has been approved for CEU credits for LCMHCs by the Vermont Office of Professional Regulation and for 6.25 credits for Social Workers by the National Association of Social Workers, VT Chapter (CEU #1046).

Our day’s schedule may be laid out differently this year as a virtual event, but we’re excited to still bring an amazing lineup of nationally and internationally known speakers who’ll share recent research and lived experience stories:

  • Dr. William Walsh, PhD, FACN, President and Founder of Walsh Research Institute, will present a look at advanced nutrient therapies and the role of Epigenetics in mental disorders.
  • Diana Chao is the Founder and Executive Director of Letters to Strangers. As a 22-year-old first-generation Chinese-American, Diana shares her story of living with bipolar disorder.
  • Pete and Kevin Earley, father and son, will share their perspectives of Kevin’s mental illness journey to recovery. Pete is a mental health advocate and best-selling author of Crazy: A Father’s Search Through America’s Mental Health Madness. Kevin is an artist, musician, and mentor for youth living with a mental illness.
  • Panel Discussion: “A Collaborative Approach to Crisis Intervention.” Find out what works and what doesn’t work in one Vermont county through a guided panel discussion with the director of emergency services and the chief of police. Also hear about what worked and what didn’t from a person with lived experience. Moderated by Kristin Chandler, Coordinator of Team Two, the panel will include Tony Stevens, MS, LCMHC, from Northwestern Counseling & Support Services, Maurice Lamothe, St. Albans Chief of Police, and NAMI Vermont Outreach Coordinator and Member Dan Towle.
