Boston Archbishop Sean P. O'Malley will speak at Boston College next Wednesday as part of a conference, sponsored by the school and the Boston Archdiocese, on clergy sexual abuse and its effects on victims' mental health.

Jack Dunn, a college spokesman, said yesterday that more than 200 mental health workers from around the country will meet to discuss "victim needs and best practices" during the daylong conference.

The conference is part of a series of events from the school's "Church in the 21st Century" program. This is the first time Boston College has collaborated with the archdiocese after more than 100 events.

"We agreed to do this together for the sake of the victims," Dunn said.
