MENTAL HEALTH CONFERENCE
SEPTEMBER 7–8, 2018
KO’OLAU BALLROOMS

Studies show that 1 out of every 4 adults in America will be affected by mental illness at some point in their lives. This staggering reality can feel daunting, but there is hope. Hope says that you are not defined by your illness. Hope says your life has a purpose even when you don't feel it. Hope says you are not alone.
