Pathways to Hope

The Pathways to Hope conference, part of NAMI FaithNet, is a chance for communities to build their own grassroots movement to help engage faith communities, mental health providers, NAMI members, and other community partners in building sustainable coalitions in support of people living with mental health conditions.

The conference will be held August 26-27, 2022, hosted by 17 National State Organizations and National Affiliates across the country. 

Attendees will enjoy a mix of nationally produced plenary sessions in the mornings and locally developed workshops in the afternoons. Attendees can register to view the nationally produced plenary sessions or attend in-person, virtual or hybrid events with one of the participating affiliates.

This conference is designed to bring people together from across communities to reduce the stigma of mental illness; activate and engage communities at the grassroots level to provide support for individuals impacted by mental health issues; and help them find local resources for better mental health care. 

Conference workshops are organized around five tracks: Mental Health, Peer Support, Therapy & Counseling, Faith & Community and Youth. Good mental health means supporting the physical, mental, spiritual and relational aspects of a person’s life. 

There are two ways to register: with an affiliate or by viewing only the morning sessions through NAMI National.
