Join us virtually to screen HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT: YOUTH MENTAL ILLNESS. Following the screening, we will have a panel discussion with local professionals and leaders in the industry to discuss potential warning signs, reducing stigma, how and when to seek help, and where that help exists. We will also offer three breakout sessions for a more intimate gathering to ask and answer additional questions and concerns. Click here to register.

Hiding in Plain Sight: Youth Mental Illness features first-person accounts from more than 20 young people, ranging in age from 11 to 27, who live with mental health conditions, as well as parents, teachers, friends, healthcare providers in their lives, and independent mental health experts.
