On June 16–17, families gathered at the 2017 Texas Parent to Parent Conference. Texas Family Voice Network was privileged to have several family leaders present on their journeys through mental health and leadership. What a great experience! Thanks Sherry Santa, Nidia Heston, Valencia Shealyn Olvera-Gensollen ,Rebecca Marquez, Christianna Rhoads, Sandra Pinon and Barbara Granger. https://www.facebook.com/TxFVN/photos/a.1049045048474039.1073741828.226719827373236/1538398282872044/?type=3&theater
There is much work to be done, but having a specified time, the first week of May, and events all over Texas, as well as the country, to celebrate and honor children’s mental health is a good start. Let’s keep spreading the word!
