2019 Children’s Health Summit

Every Child Can Be a Success: Creating Positive Outcomes

Mark your calendar for May 8-9, 2019, at the Hilton Jackson.

Today, 1 in 5 children experience a behavioral health crisis including substance abuse, mood disorders, ADHD, autism, emotional challenges and self-harming tendencies. Unfortunately, when symptoms go unnoticed or untreated, these challenges become much more difficult to overcome and can impact the social, emotional and physical health of the child long-term. Of the children who suffer, fewer than 20 percent ever receive proper treatment.  But, given the right tools, every child can be a success story.

During this year’s summit, we will give participants the tools they need to create positive outcomes for Mississippi’s children and families.¬† The event will include breakout workshops and a general session that address many of the pressing issues facing those working with children.
