Dates: November 17-19, 2021
Each year, the annual Native American Youth Mental Health Conference brings together leaders, educators, mental health practitioners, researchers, Native American youth, and other stakeholders in fields related to Native American mental health to share up-to-date research and best practices on youth mental health & wellness. This year’s virtual conference will provide innovative insights, research and practices on Native American Youth School and Community Mental Health.
Please join us to discover culturally relevant and science-based strategies to improve the mental health and wellness of Native American youth and families; to improve school practices that better support Native American students and create caring, trauma-sensitive classrooms; to learn about different ways to re-engage youth during crisis; and to learn how to use indigenous values and teachings to empower schools and communities.
