TESTIMONIALS

 "There were many good talks, it was difficult to choose. There were about 5 that were game-changing for me." ​

"This conference has been a wonderful way to reconnect with my passion and move past this feeling of being unmotivated and uninspired. I do feel that fire in my belly reignited. I've connected with two of the speakers and am excited to continue those conversations and nurture those relationships."

"The timing of the theme BE BOLD came at a time when I was running on fumes. Thank you for all of the wisdom, inspiration, resources, and recommendations! It was a fab summit. It was a real summit and thank you for being considerate enough to allow us to watch at a later time after the "live" portion had been concluded."

"Love the social justice lense throughout the summit."

"This presentation was so informative and I loved the bravery, boldness and compassion the presenter showed. Thank you!"

"Thank you so much for reinforcing the importance of advocacy and taking a political stance as mental health professionals, instead of solely burdening our refugee clients for their distress and recovery. This also includes advocating for changes and supports as they resettle under much pressure to 'perform' with little time and supports." 

 

"This was wonderful! Please keep shining the light in these dark places and lifting up those who are really the heroes. This talk articulate so much of what I've seen in my work with refugees here in the US, restoring dignity and humanity. I so appreciated that you brought in a broader focus than just mental health work our work as practitioners isn't wholistic if it isn't informed by systemic barriers and the everyday realities that our clients face."
