Quote of the Day:   Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear ~ Ambrose Redmoon

During the meeting, you will have the opportunity to dialogue with national policy leaders in children’s mental health. This includes, Paolo del Vecchio, Director of the Center for Mental Health Services at SAMHSA, David Miller, from the National Association of State Mental Health Directors and Michelle Zabel, Director of the National Technical Assistance Network for Children’s Mental Health – and more! You will also have lots of time to network with your colleagues from local and state family organizations across the country!


Knowing that family run organizations are always under budget constraints, we have made every effort to make the registration affordable. Liz Sweet has also authorized Statewide Family Network grantees to use their grant funds to attend the meeting.
