2024 CRITICAL ISSUES FACING CHILDREN & ADOLESCENTS PLANNING COMMITTEE MEMBERS

This year’s program for behavioral health professionals tackles the critical issues faced by those working with youth and families. From schools to crisis response, the program features new faculty, relevant topics, and interactive sessions based on evidence-based practices and professional input. The goal is to equip attendees with stronger clinical skills and foster collaboration across disciplines.

We thank this year’s planning committee for their hard work, dedication, and creation of a great and comprehensive program.
