Yavapai County Community Health Services in partnership Arizona Department of Health Services and the Yavapai Justice and Mental Health Coalition will host its first annual Youth Mental Health Awareness Conference, ‘Our Future in Mind’ at the Prescott Resort & Conference Center, Monday and Tuesday, July 25th and 26th, 2022, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The two-day in-person event is intended to help youth in navigating the challenges of today. Speakers will address topics such as brain development, anxiety, and stress with keynote addresses and breakout sessions. The conference is intended for anyone in the community who cares for or about children, teens, and young adults. Teens ages 14-18 are also invited.

“Our Future in Mind” plans to bring together 200+ industry professionals to provide resources and support for young people as they grow. Educators are eligible to receive up to 14 hours of continuing education units for attending the conference. General admission is $55, admission for school staff is $35 and tickets for students are $15. Lunch is included each day for everyone who registers. Ticket sales end on July 14, 2022.

According to new CDC data, in 2021, more than a third (37%) of high school students reported they experienced poor mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic, and 44% reported they persistently felt sad or hopeless during the past year[1].

The conference boasts four expert keynote speakers, a vendor’s area full of resources and breakout sessions to address topics such as trauma, internet safety, bullying prevention, nutrition and eating disorders, as well as life skills such as de-escalation tactics and how to build healthy relationships.

I am happy to answer any questions you may have. Looking forward to a great conference.
