You are invited to the upcoming Integrative Mental Health Conference & Expo hosted by Kathy Flaminio and Katie Kenefick of 1000 Petals, Marit Appeldoorn and Carol Siegel. This event will be held at the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation in St. Paul.
Through the Mind-Body Connection: An Integrative Approach to Mental Health & Well-Being for Children & Adults highlights cutting edge work from both traditional treatment and holistic health modalities. Educators, clinicians, parents and community members are invited to attend.
