Social Program

As you prepare to immerse yourself in the transformative learnings and insights of FMHC25 we wanted to shine a spotlight on an equally vital aspect of your experience: the power of social connection.

We know that in the demanding world of mental healthcare, it's far too easy to feel isolated in your challenges and triumphs. That's why we've crafted a vibrant social calendar designed to help you forge meaningful bonds, expand your support network, and rediscover the joy of camaraderie.

Think of it as a chance to recharge your social batteries, remind yourself that you're part of a larger community, and perhaps even forge lifelong friendships and collaborations!
