UPDATE: After reviewing the state’s order and updated policy around COVID-19 issued by the California Department of Public Health, we are postponing the Youth Symposium.

NAMI CA is excited to announce the date and location for our second annual Youth Symposium: April 22, 2020 at the Sheraton Hotel in Sacramento, California.

For the “Team NAMI: Building Leadership” symposium, our program will empower and provide a space for young people and educators to become informed about the importance of ending stigma and opening up the conversation about mental illness and mental health.

Participants will learn about:

  • prevention and early intervention
  • career pathways in mental health
  • NAMI on Campus High School Club Program
  • best practices for stigma reduction

We will also have youth speakers from across the state share personal stories about how they have taken stance to start the conversation around mental health awareness.

Wednesday, April 22, 2020, 9 am to 3 pm

Check-in and on-sight registration opens at 8 am

Networking & refreshments: 8:30 to 9 am
