Mental Health at the Intersections

The next Mental Health at the Intersections will be in May of 2020. Please return to our website in the coming months for details!

Each year, the Pacific Center for Human Growth, in collaboration with Alameda County Behavioral Services, brings the Mental Health at the Intersections conference to the community. This conference is a day of interactive and immersive learning centering Queer & Trans People of Color.

Together, facilitators and participants explore the ways in which QTPOC experience multiple forms of oppression that, too often, are not addressed effectively within the therapeutic context. Combining personal stories, educational theory, and professional experience, workshop facilitators help participants move beyond dominant mental health paradigms toward a more holistic, culturally relevant, integrated approach.
