Living Water

In honor of  Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC ) Mental Health Awareness Month, Living Waters Inc will collaborate with Empower Your Life Services to host this pivotal event.  It is an important dialogue that will convene social workers, counselors, researchers, justice-involved professionals, community and faith leaders, and other stakeholders from child and family servicing organizations to explore the intersection of domestic violence and mental health and its profound impacts on children and families.

Domestic violence leaves lasting scars on the mental health of children and families, especially within BIPOC communities. This event is an essential step toward understanding these impacts and working collaboratively to support healing and resilience. We invite all stakeholders to join us.
