Youth Track!

Youth ages 12-26 who identify with a social, emotional, behavior, substance use and/or mental health challenge are welcome to attend the conference.  Youth are invited to attend the keynote speaker presentations, and then enjoy special youth-only sessions during workshop breakout times.

There will be a designated “Youth Room” where youth workshops will be held and where youth can hang out.  UPDATE: the conference has filled our limited number of spots available for youth, and the
Youth Track Registration is now closed.
