UPDATE: We are now offering 6.5 CEUs through NASW.
UVU will host the fourth annual Mental Health Symposium Thursday, January 31st, 2013. The Symposium was originally designed to highlight various areas of concern regarding the mental health of UVU students and community. In previous years, participants enjoyed the variety and quality of the presentations focusing on General Mental Health, Autism and Addiction – and felt that they acquired valuable information. Based upon community interest, student support and overwhelming feedback, the UVU College of Humanities and Social Sciences has chosen to make the focus of this year's symposium Depression.
Our goal is to provide information on a wide-range of issues specific to the topic of depression. The symposium advisory committee plans to include a keynote presentation from Dr. Kris Doty. Dr. Doty will present the findings of her latest research into the topic of Mormon Women Diagnosed with Depression. A selection of sessions will follow dealing with various aspects of depression including – male depression, resources for families dealing with depression, and depression among college-age students.
Based upon previous symposium attendance - the conference is being designed to meet the needs of university students, mental health professionals and community participants. Presentations will offer insight and education on depression-specific topics, treatments and resources. Sessions will provide useful information to anyone with an interest in mental health and/or depression. We invite you to join us for this informative day-long exploration into the important subject of Depression.
