According to NIMH, half of all lifetime cases of mental disorders begin by age 14. In any given year, only 20 percent of children with mental disorders are identified and receive health services as reported by the U.S. Public Health Services.

This conference aims to raise awareness and sensitivity by providing accurate information while bringing all stakeholders together to form a community alliance. The consequences of untreated mental health disorders in children and adolescents are severe. Preventing suicide, school failure, criminal behavior, and substance abuse are what we, as advocates, aim for as we promote treatment and recovery for our children and youth.

Join us for a day of learning, networking, and sharing. We can all become better advocates for our children.
