On April 12th, 2019, leaders in school-based health care will come together to discuss innovative ways to provide mental health services to Oregon's youth at the second state-wide Oregon School-Based Mental Health Summit.
In 2016, nearly 100 administrators, providers, educators and policy experts came together to attend sessions addressing topics including Trauma Informed Care, Suicide Prevention, Crisis Response and Addictions. In 2019 we will come together again to learn from experts and each other as professionals across Oregon work to improve the mental health of Oregon youth. 
We are excited to bring this statewide group to Central Oregon to the Riverhouse in 2019.
