Healing Hearts Trauma Support Conference

September 28 - September 29, 2018
YMCA O'Fallon Rec Complex

The Healing Hearts Trauma Support Conference is designed to help individuals struggling mentally, physically, socially and spiritually with the loss of a loved one, personal victimization, community fear of gun violence, or police brutality.

Participants will engage in grief-coping skills workshops that promote physical and mental health awareness; small and large group team building workshops that enhance relationships with friends and family; civic engagement workshops that encourages activism in the community which develops a combination of knowledge, skills, values, relationships with judicial/ public safety authorities, and motivations to make a difference; and workshops that help women provide emotional support to their remaining children.

This event is open to the public and free to attend.
