School Based Mental Health Conference

Duval County Public Schools will be hosting the 2nd Annual School Based Mental Health Conference themed “Unlocking The Pieces to Student Mental Health”

Friday, May 19th – William M. Raines High School,  9th graders


Friday, May 26th – Jeff Davis Middle School,  8th graders

The purpose of this conference is to:

  • Teach youth social, behavioral, and emotional skills.
  • Bring about awareness of mental health and how students can navigate through life successfully despite risk factors.
  • Foster resilience and increase protective factors in youth.

Mental Health is a growing concern in our community and we recognize the impact it can have upon students and their families. But we know that healing is possible and resources are available to help youth overcome and achieve their dreams with your assistance.  We would like to extend an invitation to your organization to present at this year’s conference.

The breakout sessions for the conference are 90 minutes in length and should be interactive as you are presenting to adolescents. If possible, we would like for you to have at least one co-presenter.

If you have any questions, comments and/or concerns please contact, Katrina Taylor ateunicek@duvalschools.org.

Thank you in advance for your willingness to consider our request as we partner together to assist the youth of DCPS!
