Healing Our Youth: Get Educated! is a mental health educational program that educates schools (teachers, administrative staff, school employees), parents, and community members who work with youth about mental disorders. Each event includes a 90 minute panelist presentation (click here for more details) and a resource fair. For teachers and other professionals, 2 contact hours are awarded for continuing education. The exhibitors at the resource fair include: local mental health hospitals/clinics/networks, suicide awareness programs, nutritionists, private practice counselors and therapists, nonprofits that provide a variety of therapies for mental health issues, eating disorder clinics, local mental health support groups, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, Crisis Intervention Team officers from local sheriff and police departments, and many more valuable community resources and support.
Our goal is to educate the adults who are most involved in the lives of our youth so these adults have the knowledge and tools to identify mental health concerns in youth early, which will then hopefully lead to earlier treatment of mental disorders to improve outcomes for our youth with mental health issues.
