Attend a Hmong Mental Health Conference

hmong story clothRegister now for the one-day conference, The State of Mental Health in the Hmong Community, set for Friday, November 7, 8 am - 4:30 pm, at the Wilder Foundation, 451 Lexington Parkway, St. Paul.

The traumatic experience of migration has made an impact on many Hmong Americans, leaving some with mental health issues that go unidentified and/or untreated due to barriers, disparities, and gaps within the Western mental health system that inhibit access.

Conference organizers say their goals for participants are to:

  • Demonstrate an increased understanding of what mental health is in the Hmong Community.
  • Identify ways in which Hmong families and professionals can collaborate to better meet the needs of Hmong clients.
  • Apply ideas and strategies to bridge the cultural gap and better serve the Hmong Community.

Speakers include Dr. Alyssa Vang, AKV Psychological and Consulting Services, LLC and True Thao, The Family Partnership.

The registration fee, which includes materials, light breakfast, and lunch, is $100 for for-profit businesses, $50 for non-profit or government agencies, and $25 for students.

Register by contacting Latresa Holmes via email at latresa.holmes@co.ramsey.mn.us or call 651-266-2520.
