Unlocked Minds: Oklahoma’s Free Mental Health Conference to Strengthen the State’s Mental Health System

Tulsa Tech’s Lemley Memorial Campus will host the first Annual UniteCare Conference on April 4th and 5th. This Community Collaboration Conference is aimed at mental health and caregiving professionals, offering workshops and training sessions to teach best practices for mental health care. The conference is intended for mental health care professionals, caregivers, and advocates, aiming to build a stronger mental health system in Oklahoma.

As of 2021, more than 592,000 adults in Oklahoma have a mental health condition. However, more than half of them do not receive help due to various barriers. The conference seeks to provide attendees with the knowledge and tools to address mental health and support individuals in need. Workshops will cover topics such as substance use disorders, self-care, and grief, offering a space for local caregivers and community members to collaborate on potential solutions to the shortage of mental health care providers in many Oklahoma communities.

The conference will start at 8:30 a.m. each day and conclude around 3 p.m. Sponsors for the event include Transformations, TulsaTech, Patriot Family Counseling Services, CREOKS, and the Mental Health Association of Oklahoma. Attendees can sign up for the conference through the channel 8 newsletter.
