FREE AND OPEN TO PEOPLE OF ALL FAITHS!
The Mental Health Conference was created in 2001 as a response to the tragic death of Barbara Schneider, a Minneapolis woman active in the Twin Cities Jewish community who struggled with severe mental illness.
Grant-funded for the first six years, the annual conference found a home in 2007 under the joint auspices of Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Minneapolis (JFCS) and Jewish Family Service of St. Paul (JFS). With generous support from the community, the conference continues to be free and open to everyone.
Every year we recognize those lost due to mental illness, who live on in our memories. We honor those with an ongoing and heroic struggle to live productively in the community. We acknowledge the parents, grandparents, spouses, siblings, children and friends, whose own lives are changed by the illnesses of others and whose struggle to provide support and caring can last a lifetime.
We also honor all faith and spiritual communities that work to raise awareness, reduce stigma and provide comfort to those in need, fulfilling the conference’s mission – “opening doors, opening minds, and opening hearts.”
