Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for young people 15-24 in Iowa.  In 2016, 13.4% of young people indicated, on the Iowa Youth Survey, that they had seriously considered suicide in the past year. One out of five youth has a mental illness; yet fewer than 20% receive treatment.  Schools are working with countless young people on a daily basis that are coming in with complex mental health and trauma needs.

This year’s conference is themed culturally responsive school mental health.

We have two keynotes, Jane Elliot & Dr. Michael Lindsey and twenty four break-out sessions. (You can read more about the two keynote speakers by clicking on the tab titled “Keynote Speakers” on the left side of registration page.)
