As a major part of outreach, Mental Health America of Spartanburg County hosts the annual Educational Series. We offer six sessions throughout the calendar year. We work hard to survey our audience for interests and then feature the most relevant speakers and topics.

2023 Educational Series

Education sessions are held every other month, the second Thursday of the month. Events are free to the public. Or, through our partnership with Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System, social workers and counselors can receive Continuing Education Credits for a $15 fee.

With the unknowns of COVID-19 and its variants, we will provide hybrid offerings of this series throughout the 2023 year. Our series will be presented online and in-person. Hybrid events will have a Zoom registration link in the event description. Register in advance via the links below, and you will immediately receive additional instructions by email.

We hope you can participate and invite others to these events. Be sure to join our email list and follow us on Facebook for even more promotional details. >> View & Share Flyer
