Learn from veteran educators and other licensed professionals:

  • What key drivers of student mental health problems are — social media, performance arms race, substance abuse, societal pressures, etc. — and how to tackle them
  • Proven practices at home, school, and in the community that support kids’ mental health and well-being
  • Effective prevention, intervention, and post-intervention for suicide, which is the second leading cause of death in ages 15-34 group and why half of suicides occur in Maricopa County
