Many Faces of Mental Illness Conference

Siouxland Mental Health - Many Faces of Mental Illness

Siouxland Mental Health Center’s Many Faces of Mental Illness conference has been a leading mental health conference in the Siouxland area for more than 15 years.

The conference goal is to provide cutting edge information about mental health and addictions to professionals, clients and family advocates.

Typical attendees are social workers, psychiatrists, therapists, addiction counselors, nurses and family advocates.  We also do our best to provide scholarships to consumers who are active in their recovery.

We always welcome and encourage ideas of topics and speakers from conference attendees. A collaborative effort from the conference committee and suggestions from local agencies and individuals are used to recruit conference speakers.

In the past, Many Face of Mental Illness conference has brought in a wide variety of speakers, such as:

  • Bruce Goldstein, author of “Puppy Chow Is Better than Prozac”
  •  Kristina Wandzilak and Constance Curry, authors of “The Lost Years” and the learning channel’s services “Addicted”
  •  Kay Jamison, author of “An Unquiet Mind”
  •  Ron Perkinson, clinical director of Keystone Treatment Center in Canton, South Dakota
