"I am grateful for the opportunity to have attended several of Dr. Lakita Long's amazing Mental Health conferences. I have learned a lot and appreciate the vision of Dr. Long.

The speakers are always dynamic and very informative. The lunches are also so delicious! Dr. Long always goes above and all out for those who attend. 

If were honest mental health illness affects all of our families and communities. Furthermore, we need to commit (more than ever) to overcome the stigmas of Mental Health illness by gaining more knowledge and understanding. 

I encourage everyone to attend one of Dr. Long's conferences. You will definitely leave being educated, equipped and empowered to make a difference!"
