We are excited to announce the Parent/Professional Advocacy League (PPAL) will hold its 4th Annual Conference and Celebration for Families and Professionals on May 30, 2014 at the Best Western Royal Plaza & Trade Center, Marlborough, MA from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

This year promises to be an outstanding event, gathering more than 500 attendees with a comprehensive agenda, including: workshops, speakers and a large and diverse Exhibition Hall filled with organizations and companies serving the children’s mental health communities.

We are also proud to present our Second Youth/Young Adult Conference Track, giving young people aged 16-25 the opportunity to develop their skills as leaders and advocates.

Our Conference will be an amazing connection to family and youth journeys. Our Keynote Speaker, Liza Long, is the author of the essay, “I Am Adam Lanza’s Mother. Liza encourages everyone to speak up for kids and to help us end the stigma of mental illness. Our other Featured Speaker, Daneé Sergeant is a survivor of trauma, homelessness, and polysubstance abuse disorder who lives with bipolar disorder. Since getting the help she needed and deserved, Daneé has been empowering others to speak up, embrace who they are, and seek the help they need so that they can survive and thrive in college and beyond.
