Communities in the 21st century are challenged with a myriad of social and emotional issues that affect young people in today’s society. Now more than ever, it is imperative that we unearth these challenges and open up a dialogue about seeking and receiving help. By bringing such issues as bullying, anxiety, depression, suicide, ADHD, learning disorders, and substance abuse to the forefront, this conference seeks to destigmatize mental-health concerns and advocate for the effective support of the well-being of all children, teens, and families. The day will include presentations, panels, and discussions with doctors, social workers, academics, parents, authors, and other pioneers in the field of mental health. Knowledge, strategies, lessons learned, and tools to implement effective best practices will be shared in order to make our homes, schools, and communities more caring, connected, and collaborative.
Conference Fee: $25 per person
