The Pennsylvania Youth Mental Health Summit is a virtual summit gathering school-based and community mental health professionals, youth, policy-makers, and other vested partners to dialogue, share and lead in addressing Pennsylvania’s growing mental health crisis, through awareness and cross-systems partnership and tiered supports.
