We are all healers by the way we walk in the world


Join us for an interactive online 6 hour healing trauma conference. This transformative conference aims to empower participants with the tools and insights needed to navigate the complex realm of trauma and healing. This event will be facilitated by dynamic and compassionate individuals who have dedicated their lives to helping themselves and others heal from trauma. Unique perspectives to the healing process will be explored. Embrace expertise, combined authenticity and empathetic nature, as we walk on the path toward resilience and recovery.

Lead Facilitator: Cheryl Sharp, Vice President of the Copeland Center Board of Directors

Cheryl Sharp holds the unique perspective of a person who has recovered from significant mental health challenges, a trauma survivor, a family member of a loved one who died as a result of mental health challenges, and a provider of substance abuse and mental health services. Sharp has worked with adult trauma survivors for over 30 years and trains and speaks internationally on trauma-informed approaches and suicide prevention. She received a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services (SAMHSA) Voice Award in 2015 for her work and personal stories educating the public about trauma and behavioral health and the Lou Ann Townsend Courage Award for her contributions to persons with psychiatric disabilities. Sharp believes in the limitless possibilities found within each of us to live our lives from a place of personal power.  She has been a longtime supporter of the Copeland Center for Wellness and Recovery and enjoys living her life to the fullest as a mother and grandmother in eastern North Carolina.

Through group discussions, experiential exercises, and virtual breakout rooms, participants will have the opportunity to connect with one another, share their stories, and support their collective healing process.
