Grit & Grace: Multicultural Women’s Mental Health Conference is a 1-day innovative program to inspire, educate and empower women to take charge of their mental health and cultivate resilience and wellbeing.

  • INSPIRATION: Get inspired by the personal stories of the nation’s leading mental health advocates.
  • EDUCATION: Explore barriers & pathways to mental health and wellbeing.
  • EMPOWERMENT: Learn how to take charge of your mental health and cultivate resilience & wellbeing.

The conference will be gender-responsive and tailored to address the unique mental health needs of women focusing on a multitude of factors affecting women including adverse childhood experiences, social and cultural factors, race & ethnicity, immigration & acculturation, class, gender, poverty, homelessness, violence, and trauma.

About the Conference Theme: People living with mental health conditions are often perceived to be weak or have a character flaw. Neither of which is true. It takes an enormous amount of strength and courage to cope with a mental health condition and create a healthy, meaningful, productive life. At ASHA International, we salute the Grit & Grace of people living with mental health conditions, celebrate their resilience, and honor their humanity.
