Recognizing that people trust their faith leaders for guidance on mental health, the United Way of Broward County organized a conference where PBA Associate Professor Dr. Don McCulloch led the opening discussion.
McCulloch facilitated the panel “From Strategy to Success” with an interfaith group of religious leaders who discussed faith-based solutions to mental health issues. They gathered at the United Way’s Faith-Based and Community-Based Behavioral Health Conference last month.
McCulloch, chair of PBA’s Psychology Department, writes and speaks on homeschooling, empty nest syndrome and the estrangement of adult children from their parents. He teaches undergraduate psychology and graduate counseling courses, including spirituality. He is a private practitioner at Spanish River Counseling Center and author of Perfect Circle: A Husband’s Guide to the Six Tasks of a Contemporary Christian Marriage.
The United Way of Broward County’s Commission on Behavioral Health & Drug Prevention held the discussion in collaboration with the Broward Behavioral Health Coalition, the Florida Department of Children and Families, FHE Health and Signature Grand in Davie, Florida, where the event was held.
