Raising mental health awareness among students and our community, and fostering interest in scientific research and the fields of mental health, are important to us. That’s why the Indiana Counseling Association and Porter-Starke Services have partnered to launch the Community Awareness, Research, and Education (CARE) Project.

For this initiative, students complete original independent research on topics related to mental health issues. Research may be completed for a class or as an extracurricular activity.

Students with completed research are invited to present their work at the Indiana Counseling Association’s annual conference; all conference registration fees are waived! Don't miss this opportunity to present to peers, graduate students, professors, and professionals in the field!

The 2018 conference will be on Friday, June 8, in Fort Wayne, IN at the Courtyard by Marriott. Check out the research submissions received and see our conference presentations below!

Each year, our conference registration form and research submission form are emailed to our contacts.
