Youth Mental Health Conference: Closing the Gap
According to national studies, the average delay from the time youth begin to exhibit mental illness symptoms and the time they begin to receive care is 8-10 years. The 2022 Youth Mental Health Conference "Closing the Gap" will provide up-to-date information, trauma-informed best practices and practical solutions on how each of us can use our influence to close this 8-10 year gap.
