We are also proud to present our third Youth Track Workshops, giving young people ages 13-25 the opportunity to develop their skills as leaders and advocates.

As always we will have a range of exhibitors representing organizations serving the children’s mental health communities.

Our Keynote Speaker, Victoria Costello, is the author of A Lethal Inheritance, A Mother Uncovers the Science Behind Three Generations of mental Illness, and writes extensively for a varietly of publications including the HuffingtonPost and the Scientific American Mind, as well as for her own blog. Having extensive experience facing mental health challenges in her own family, Ms. Costello will speak to how mental disorders can run through families and how families can work to reverse that trend.
