This symposium is an annual event. Often, people outside of the mental health field encounter misinformation or advice regarding mental health. Please note that the content of the symposium is educational and discussion-oriented. Although the Crisis Center hopes the sessions are beneficial, they are not intended as counseling or therapy.
The Crisis Center was established in Gainesville in 1969 and serves the community through outreach, counseling services, mobile response teams/care teams, survivor of suicide groups, operating a local crisis line, and the national suicide hotline.
