The public is invited to join community leaders Sept. 7 at the inaugural Integrated Health Symposium.
The goal of the free event is to help citizens understand the importance of addressing physical health, mental health, and/or substance abuse disorders.
The symposium will feature a series of guest speakers presenting their stories. Attendees will learn about community efforts toward a more encompassing approach to overcome stigma and work toward a healthier community.
Law enforcement officials, medical providers, government officials and addiction specialists will share first-hand accounts of the trauma-informed approach responders and providers are working to provide to the community.
The event will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Building 600 on the Bullhead City campus of Mohave Community College.
