YWCA Greater Austin Mental Health Symposium

September 10, 2020

Not JUST Mental Health: The impact of sociocultural, environmental & systemic factors 

VIRTUAL SYMPOSIUM: Tuesday, October 27- Thursday, October 29, 2020

For 113 years, YWCA Greater Austin has been a social justice leader in the community, advancing our mission towards the Elimination of Racism and the Empowerment of Women.

In collaboration Huston Tillotson University College of Arts & Sciences, YWCA Greater Austin will be providing the Not JUST Mental Health Symposium to highlight the multiple layers of oppression generated through racist patriarchal ideologies and the impact on society’s mental health.

Through this symposium we will address: sociocultural, environmental and systemic factors which influence symptomatology and access to treatment; raise awareness of social justice issues and the correlation to trauma; and foster ethical, culturally conscious, and JUST mental health services for marginalized populations that have traditionally been systemically and systematically harmed.

To make this symposium as accessible as possible to all who would like to attend, scholarships are available to those who need them. Application information available on the registration page.

Tickets available: early-bird pricing until September 30, 2020.
