    The Women's Policy Forum 9th Annual Emerging Issues Symposium presented in partnership with The Fort Worth Report brings a timely and vital conversation on the topic of Mental Health and Mental Wellness in Tarrant County.

    Our goal is to raise awareness and understanding about the current state of Mental Health and Mental Wellness programs and outcomes in Tarrant County using data-driven evidence and focused conversations. The morning will begin with a breakfast facilitated and led by The Fort Worth Report featuring a panel of community and healthcare experts. The event will conclude with a capstone conversation that envelops the topics discussed earlier in the event. In support of attendees and the conversations held, nonprofit organizations that support mental health and wellness will be onsite to offer support and services.

    This event is made possible through the generous partnership of sponsors and underwriters. Proceeds from the Symposium benefit Women's Policy Forum Foundation. Anticipated audience will exceed 200 thought leaders, including representatives of leading private and public sector organizations throughout Tarrant County who are dedicated to making positive changes in their community. 

    Face masks are optional but encouraged when when not seated at your table eating or drinking. Masks will be available if needed. Tables will be spaced out and fewer attendees seated at each table.
