Family and Youth Leadership Summit

April 14, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm EDT

The family and youth leadership summit hosted by NAMI of Virginia, Virginia Family Network.

This free summit in Midlothian is designed for families impacted by behavioral and mental health issues and offers parents, caregivers, and youth training and peer supports. Formed Families Forward will be there!

The focus of the Summit is to promote parent, caregiver and youth voice through knowledge, skills and
networking. Our speakers and workshops are selected to maximize opportunities to gather resources on
mental health, services and supports, latest trends and leadership development. This year we are pleased to have Dr. Allison Sampson-Jackson as our keynote speaker. Known best for her work in Trauma Informed Care, Dr. Sampson-Jackson will be focusing on the other side of trauma, RESILIENCY, and its important role in overcoming adversity. Sharing her newest talk, Resiliency through Connection, Dr. Sampson-Jackson builds on her renowned TedTalk, arguing that relationships, are indeed, the premier evidence based practice. The Summit offers three targeted tracks
  1. Parent, Caregiver, Community Track
  2. High School Aged Track
  3. Middle School Aged Track
