This program is designed as a virtual meet-up similar to coffee breaks (or cocktail hours), providing mental health professionals a forum to connect with peers for informal conversations around a single topic. Topics are posed as questions, and no preparation is required to attend the event. Click the image above to see all IPA café programs.
