The Undoing: Building New Skills in Advocacy, Prevention and Intervention

September 22, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join the Conversation on Youth & Mental Health at the 2023 BHHS SYMPOSIUM 

The 2023 Behavioral Health and Human Services Symposium seeks to educate and develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of professionals and paraprofessionals who work with children and youth. The goal is to provide educational and training activities that engage students and community-based organizations in gathering and sharing information. We will explore the roles that racial, social, emotional, psychological, and economic barriers have on the mental well-being of minority populations challenged with adverse behavioral health. We hope participants will reflect on how we build new knowledge on the canvas of our lived experiences.

The Symposium’s theme comes from The Daily Undoing: Being Better at Being Human by David Gaudet.
