Each year, more than 100,000 people participate in one of our educational programs. From initiatives that engage children in the classroom to professional development conferences, our goal is to provide learning opportunities about mental health and increase wellness in our community.
As part of our community programming, we host professional events (such as the Adolescent Symposium of Texas or Mental Health First Aid courses). We also offer WHO® (We Help Ourselves), a classroom guidance curriculum designed to help children and teenagers protect themselves from victimization.
Designed for anyone who works with teenagers and adolescents, the Adolescent Symposium of Texas features a wealth of programming and learning opportunities specific to youth-related mental illness.

Women’s Conference: POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19
Countering the concept of crazy: Women, Wellness and Work
This conference is for ALL women! Balancing family, work and wellness with all of the expectations of being a woman can be, well, a little crazy. This conference turns the idea of crazy into an empowering message of hope. We’ve all been there – not enough hours in the day, unrealistic expectations and that little voice in our head saying “I’m not good enough”.
During this conference, we will explore how we as women juggle all the demands we place on ourselves. We will talk about finding our inner peace in this hectic world and challenge the concept of crazy.
