Can your story change the world? Change minds? Move others to action? Or do you find your audience looking bored and surreptitiously checking their phones?
If we want to do our part in raising awareness and reducing the stigma regarding mental illness in children, we need to be effective storytellers. And if we want to advocate for our children , we need be able to communicate effectively with the professionals who work with them. If you just need to practice your “elevator speech,” or if you want to learn more about parent advocacy, join us for:
