Armed with hope Conference REGISTRATION
September 29, 2018 9 am - 2:30 pm
Suicide is the third-leading cause of death for young people ages 15 to 24. About 20% of all teens experience depression before they reach adulthood. People right next to us are hurting and we may not know. Let’s start the conversation. Teens Finding Hope will be hosting a city-wide conference in Portland, Oregon on September 29th called Armed with Hope. It is for anyone who is impacted by teen depression (teens, family members, and other adult stakeholders.)
Jeff Yalden will be our keynote speaker, he is a renowned teen advocate and specializes in assisting schools and teens when suicide and depression issues surface. We will be having breakout sessions for both teens and parents on navigating depression, bullying and self-care. There will be a teen panel during our lunchtime who will speak openly and honestly with the audience as well as two counselors to help answer audience questions. Each attendee will go home with resources, books, names of counselors, fidgets, self care kits and connections to not feel alone.
