Announcing the 1st Annual Psych Central Conference

I’m pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 1st Annual Psych Central Conference — a meeting designed to bring together people with a passion for mental health, psychology, self-help and relationship topics. This is a conference for ordinary folks who are interested in these kinds of topics, and who love reading them on Psych Central.

Years in the making, we’re taking the conference plunge because I felt it was time to feature all the great writers, bloggers, therapists and contributors to Psych Central — and elsewhere online and in real life.

It’s an opportunity to learn how to become more mindful in your life, become a better parent, or help improve your relationship. It’s also a chance to hear some great writers speak, to meet some of your Psych Central favorites, and hang out in a historic New England mill town to boot.

Interested? Read on for more details or go register now!
