MHA Spartanburg continually provides information about mental health, mental illness and seeking treatment. We host an annual Educational Series, with relevant speakers and topics. We also identify and coordinate additional helpful events throughout each year.


2020 Educational Series

Education sessions are held every other month, the second Thursday of the month. Events are free to the public. Or, counselors and social workers can attain Continuing Education Credits for a $15 fee.

Programs are typically in-person at the following location. However, during social distancing, we took things virtual with July, September and November events being presented online.
