TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS :::: Chicago, IL December 9th – 10th

Melbourne, FL –  Florida based non-profit To Write Love on Her Arms will be holding its MOVE Community Conference in Chicago, IL from December 9th-10th. MOVE Community Conference is a two-day in-depth, engaging workshop held in an effort to begin conversations about issues that are often left in the dark (depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide).

The goal of the conference is to battle stigma and shame with honesty and compassion. Licensed professional counselors lead a discussion in exploration of what is behind these struggles, what drives them, what recovery looks like, and how people can make a difference.

MOVE is for people looking for a way to engage others in conversations about topics that are serious issues in our society. The conference stems from the idea that uniting resources helps connect people from places of pain to places of hope and healing. MOVE is for teachers, students, mentors, parents, friends, pastors and professionals — whether they are new to these topics entirely or have worked in a clinical setting for years.

MOVE Community Conferences began in 2009 as a way of equipping people to engage in a healthy dialogue about the topics TWLOHA deals with on a daily basis: depression, anxiety, addiction, self-injury, suicide, brokenness, hope and community. Since TWLOHA’s inception in 2006, they have functioned as a bridge to those hurting online, alone and unsure of where to go for help. The conferences are a continuation of the conversations held online, at events, and during TWLOHA’s speaking engagements.
