The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and the U.S. surgeon general have all declared what so many parents and caregivers already know –America’s youth are in a mental health crisis. Anxiety, depression, and suicidal behavior were rising long before Covid-19 but have skyrocketed since the pandemic began. Reversing these trends will require resourcing parents, families, and those working daily with children. Attendees will learn powerful skills from experts in the field that can immediately be put to work in the home, classroom, team, program, and community.
