End the Silence 

Youth Mental Health & Suicide Prevention

As a community, we have experienced years of crisis. We realize that at the end of this pandemic, we are moving toward the potential of another. We invite you to come together to have a conversation about youth depression and suicide. This is not about being the expert, it is about coming together to listen, to learn and to create change.

This inspiring and hopeful event will include keynote speakers, educational workshops, listening sessions with high school youth, experiential opportunities and innovative approaches to healing.
