This year’s event was focused on the importance of mental health in schools – a hot topic that filled our room to capacity with over 150 registered participants!
Our informational session featured a statewide panel of youth and young adults from across Michigan. The panel shared their lived experience to help us illustrate the importance of mental health awareness in schools and used their expertise to share ideas and strategies on how we might help our schools to be more inclusive and supportive of youth with mental health challenges.
Thank you all of the families, service providers, community partners, policymakers and concerned citizens who helped make our day a success and a special thank you to our panel and the Honorable State Representative Julie Calley who helped us to kick off our event!
We were so excited to join together with everyone to raise awareness about the importance of mental health and explore ideas, strategies and supports for families, youth, parents, school staff, providers and community members on this important topic!
