Poster Sessions

2020 Poster Sessions Applications to open soon.


In honor of the late Tressa Berry, who shared her journey boldly and unapologetically while and serving as a member of our conference planning team, we are excited to offer opportunities to present posters at the Central Texas African American Family Support Conference.  Our goal in doing so is to help create the same daringly bold quest towards mental wellness in our community and to help others stand boldly in their journey.  As well, this space will help develop leaders’ presentation skills.

Posters are the presentation of information by an individual or representatives of a team.  The poster should focus on topics of journey towards wellness, recovery, and/or professional development.  Topic ideas may include personal recovery, research, and/or program outcomes.

Poster Guidelines

  • Lived experience poster presentation should provide information including Background, Experiences, Journey, Treatments and Recovery/Wellness Strategies.
  • Professional poster presentation should be structured as: Background, Methods, Results, and Discussion. Note: Please include as much actual data as possible.

Please review guidelines before applying: 2019 CTAAFSC Poster Guidelines


The abstract should include:  Poster Title, Topic, a brief summary of what attendees will learn from your poster, Poster Presenters and/or Authors including Organizational Affiliation if appropriate, and Disclosure Statement for use of material not owned by you.


The Conference Program Committee will notify if your abstract has been accepted by January 14, 2019.


All presenters accepted for the poster session will be able to attend the two day Central Texas African American Family Support Conference free of charge.
