Young Minds Matter: Communities Connecting for Well-being is a free, one-day training event for people who care about children, youth, families, and caregivers. This year’s event theme grows out of the foundation’s new strategic direction, which focuses on changing community conditions and the root causes that contribute to poor mental health, especially in communities that have been subjected to bias and discrimination. Like previous Young Minds Matter conferences, the conference will focus on children, transition-age youth and their caregivers, and this year will explore the many ways communities can promote well-being, including mental health in everyday life. Throughout the day, the conference will discuss the value of engaging historically excluded and under-represented groups* and how this enriches efforts to partner with communities to develop solutions for well-being.
This free event includes registration, breakfast and lunch. Space is limited and online registration by Friday, October 18 is requested. Continuing education units (CEUs) may be available for professional counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, addiction professionals, and peer specialists. CEU details will be posted here as finalized.
This conference will take place in Houston, Texas.
