2019 Summit: Every Child Is Our Own

Please join us for the Mental Health Association’s Mental Health Awareness Month 2019 Summit:

Every Child Is Our Own:
Addressing Suicide and Creating a Culture
of Mental Wellness for Our Children

Join us as we bring together content experts, providers and community members to learn and create dialogue towards solutions for creating community-led, culturally responsive approaches to care and healing for our youth.

The rates of suicide among children and youth are rising at alarming rates. It is time to come together to address this issue because “Every Child Is Our Own.” The majority of children and adolescents who attempt suicide have a significant mental health disorder, usually Depression.

Schools are the one place where all of our children come together. Our children spend more time in the school environment than anywhere else during this critical time of development.  Our School Panel Session will discuss the role of schools in addressing the mental health needs of children and youth as well as creating a culture of mental wellness for our children and youth. Additionally, it will discuss what schools need from us, as a community, on the practice, program, and policy level to make this a reality.

Our Community Panel Session will discuss the role of “Community” from different perspectives in addressing the mental health needs of our children and youth as well as creating a culture of mental wellness for them. We will also discuss what they need on the practice, program, and policy level to make a “Culture of Mental Wellness” a reality for our community.

This summit will highlight the protective factors that can be employed to increase our children and youth’s resiliency at home school and play. We will also learn what is needed to fully manifest a culture of mental wellness for our children and youth.

We hope you will join us for this most important discussion. Our children’s futures are in our hands.
