NAMI Illinois North: Piecing it All Together Conference
How Children’s Mental Health/Mental Illness Affects Home, School & Community. NAMI Illinois proudly announces the latest concept in mental health education: a conference focused on childhood mental health conditions designed for parents, teachers, and mental health and justice system professionals to attend. Piecing It All Together (PIAT) brings all these groups together to learn from national and regional experts about current research and treatments and to hear the same message of hope for the future. The most important people in a child’s life will gain new skills and information to help that child achieve success at home, at school, and in life. If you love or work with a child with an emotional disorder such as ADHD, depression, or bipolar disorder, PIAT is a conference you will want to attend!
