Empowering Youth Voices

The "Come as You Are" theme underscores the importance of acceptance and understanding in mental health. This year's conference focuses on the power of connection, open communication, and the collective strength that can inspire societal change and hope.

NAMI Eastside's youth programs remained strong this year with interest in trainings like Teen Mental Health First Aid, Ending the Silence, and suicide prevention courses. Cope2Thrive has been especially popular as it provides invaluable Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) training – a highly effective, drug-free approach to managing behavioral health concerns.

The conference aims to amplify the young voices that already make these programs a success, fostering a platform for change and hope.
