Recently released reports from local and national sources contain startling information about the declining mental health of girls and gender expansive youth. Since the pandemic, they are experiencing unprecedented levels of sadness and hopelessness which has serious implications for the future health of our youth, families, and communities. Join us for a critical conversation with community leaders in health care, mental health, public policy, and education about these unsettling trends. Our hope is to come together as caregivers, educators, health care workers, and communities to disrupt them and foster change. At Girls on the Run, we believe that together, we can work toward a world where EVERY girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. We hope you will join us.
All are welcome! This event is for parents, caregivers, educators, nonprofits, health care practitioners, mental health specialists, public policy advocates, researchers, business representatives, and community members of all ages and genders.
