      EVENT DETAILS
      9th Annual Youth Symposium

      The Youth Symposium on Food & Hunger is a community-based, family-driven and youth-centered initiative that brings a broad range of attention to pressing community issues. The 2019 Youth Symposium focus is on children’s mental health. The nine (9) year initiative features an interactive approach to engage youth and family voices throughout Tallahassee communities to discuss and offer ideas and strategies for change. In response to youth-led strategic planning, we partnered with state and city government and other partners to train and certify 56 community residents in Youth Mental Health First Aid. This year, we intend to use this community capacity to engage the community's youth and adults in conversation about children’s mental health.
      The purpose for this event is to increase community engagement by passing on key messages, collecting key concerns, strategizing solutions and sharing community resources with youth and families. It is hoped that those in attendance can take some of the ideas discussed and use them to create health progress for our children.
