Mentorship Dinner

Mentorship DinnerMentors serve a powerful role in our lives and careers.  Getting advice from someone who has “been there and done that” is a great gift and helps students and early-career professionals think more deeply about the direction they want their career to take and how to get there.

At BHECN, we support connecting behavioral health students, faculty and professionals in a number of ways.  One of our signature events, the Mentorship Dinner, was held January 27 at Joslyn Castle.
