Youth and Adult Signs & Symptoms 7/14 9am-12pm $40

The general population often has limited knowledge and misconceptions regarding behavioral health disorders in both children and adults.

By educating health workers, educators, practitioners, and the general public, it is the hope that the community can begin to combat the stigma against behavioral health disorders and support those experiencing symptoms in getting connected to the resources and interventions they deserve.
