The focus will be on the dramatic increase in the need for services, as millions experience the challenges of anxiety and depression for the first time, and as the challenges facing those already living with mental health conditions are exacerbated.

Join us as 40 speakers offer 25 presentations on topics ranging from Navigating the Impact of the Pandemic to Moving Beyond the Classroom: The Dance of Virtual Programming, and Legalized Marijuana: One Year Later. Get your QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) certificate or take a couple of workshops during Creative Transformations.
