A famous duo once said:
“Ohana means family and family means nobody gets left behind” ~ Lilo & Stitch
At ACMH we believe we are all Ohana ~ working together, sharing expertise and cooperating together to make sure that all children and youth with mental health challenges and their families gets what they need! It will take all of our collective wisdom and knowledge to improve mental health services and supports – so be sure to join us and our extended family including youth, families and community partners from across Michigan at this year’s conference to share your expertise.
The information requested on the attached form will be used to select conference sessions and to help ensure that presentations meet the needs of our audience and theme of this year’s conference.
Workshop sessions should be geared toward families of children and youth with mental health challenges, as well as, the professionals who support them. Presentations that showcase family and community partnerships, innovative home and community based services & supports and those that highlight the importance of family voice and choice, peer support and/or family driven and youth guided practices will be given priority.
The ACMH Conference was originally designed as a venue for parents of children & youth with mental health challenges and professionals to learn from each other and work together to improve access to quality mental health services and supports that meet the real needs of children and their families. This year will be no exception. Conference participants will include parents/caregivers, youth, parent and youth peer support specialists, policymakers, Advocates and state & local community partners from Mental Health, Child Welfare, Juvenile Justice and Education.
