We invite you to establish your company as a mental health leader by securing your sponsorship at this year’s National Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health’s 27th Annual Conference.

27th Annual Conference

The only national conference dedicated solely to ​issues that impact children and young adults with behavioral health challenges and their families.

Did you know that 1 in 5 children in America experience social, emotional and behavioral challenges?  One undisputed constant in our society is that all children who survive childhood and adolescence will become adults. For children who experience untreated behavioral health disorders, this typically results in adults who continue to struggle with symptoms, who become parents and who perpetuate this cycle. The impact of this reoccurring cycle is felt throughout our society.

For over 25 years, the National Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health has been the nationwide advocacy organization with families as its sole focus, playing an important role in helping children, youth and their families whose lives are impacted by mental health challenges.  This important work is supported largely by the generous donors like you who contribute to our cause.

The National Federation's Annual Conference is the premier event for children and youth with mental health challenges and their families. Bringing together family members, young adults, and professionals in a safe setting, free from stigma and one that celebrates skills and successes, our annual conference generates a large amount of discussion on the current issues and trends pertaining to children's mental health, from the perspective of a family-driven and youth-guided approach.

Our 27th Annual Conference will feature many great workshops and speakers this year, joining hundreds of mental health advocates and professionals from across the nation as we work to educate and empower children, youth, and families!  Learn more...
