We know that children and youth have many of the same mental health challenges as adults, but the services, funding, and understanding to provide needed assistance and support are often lacking. In the US alone, research shows that between 15% - 20% of youth between ages 12 – 17 experience mental health issues in a given year, and many aren’t getting the help they need.
This full-day conference (see attachment) begins with a keynote speaker, followed by 12 breakout sessions (you choose 3 to attend), Vendor Exhibits, continental breakfast/box lunch, and lots of networking throughout the day. Plan to join us for this, FGCU’s 3rd Annual Children’s Mental Health Conference, and help create an alliance between community stakeholders in Southwest Florida on behalf of our children's mental health and well-being. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn, network and make a difference for our children.
