Relive the Best Of COM’s Conquering the Mind Mental Health Summit

Thank you to everyone who attended our first Conquering the Mind Mental Health Summit For Recovery and Wellness on March 12, 2022! The event was a huge success, bringing together more than 125 community members to focus on sharing stories of survival and recovery and bringing healing to Montgomery County. For those of you who could not attend the event in person or simply want to re-experience it, please check out the Summit Highlights Page, now featuring videos of our main speakers, the individual stories, and the intro to the Musical!

  Training Opportunities

Life-Saving Training Sessions

Just as people trained in CPR help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. QPR Suicide Prevention Training is offered to high schools, junior high schools, communities, or any group interested in Montgomery County and the surrounding area.
Please contact us to set up training!

Trauma Informed Care (TIC) trainings are offered to communities, organizations, and individuals on a regular basis. The purpose of this training is to reduce or eliminate the possibility of re-traumatization. Talking directly about a trauma isn’t necessarily the best option so join us to learn practical skills to help you and those around you.
Please contact us to set up training!
