This year, St. Petersburg College has partnered with NVBH to empower youth in the community through this one-day event. The summit’s theme is “Building Resilience, Gaining Self Awareness, and Supporting Advocacy and Accountability of Self and Others.”
The goal is to engage youth in deep-dive discussions that address mental health awareness, social and emotional wellness while tackling relevant topics that our youth face. The vision for this event is to build self-confidence, self-acceptance and reduce the stigma of mental health in our community.
