Panhandle Behavioral Health Alliance Hosts "Peace of Mind Conference" on Tuesday, Oct. 18th in Amarillo

Jenny Inzerillo with Lytton St. Stephen, PBHA

Amarillo, there's a great opportunity to learn from mental health experts in the field of peer services at the forthcoming "Peace of Mind Conference," next week at the Xcel Building (790 S, Buchanan, downtown Amarillo). We talked to Program Officer Lytton St. Stephen from the Panhandle Behavioral Health Alliance (PBHA) on High Plains Morning for more information about the event and mental health advocacy in our region.

Keeping the conversation about mental health in the forefront of people’s minds has been a goal of nonprofit advocates for decades. So the forthcoming “Peace of Mind Conference,” hosted by the PBHA, is geared toward those working in public health, crisis intervention, education, social services, child care, addiction treatment, among other adjacent professions – anyone seeking advice from experts in the field of peer services. The conference will be held in person on October 18th from 10am to 2:30pm at the Xcel Building (790 S Buchanan St., Amarillo) in their conference room.
