Mental Health Quarterly Conference - Fall 2017: Depression

One out of five children suffers from a mental health condition. That’s more than 150,000 children in Orange County alone. Chances are someone you know, or even someone in your family, is affected. The stories of courageous children battling cancer, diabetes and asthma are familiar, yet mental illness is a crisis shrouded in social stigma, misconceptions and shame.

Join us for quarterly mental health conferences where local and national experts will provide tools to screen, diagnose, and refer disorders such as depression, ADHD, anxiety, oppositional defiant disorder, suicide and more.

General practitioners, clinicians, and any other medical professional who cares for mental health of children and teens are invited to attend.

Location: CHOC Children’s Harold Wade Education Center
