About the event

Deblin Health Concepts is proud to present the Nurturing Mental Health in Adolescents Conference, a landmark event dedicated to advancing the conversation around adolescent mental health. Scheduled for April 25, 2024, at the Hyatt Regency Houston Intercontinental Airport, this conference promises to be an engaging day filled with enlightening discussions, innovative strategies, and valuable networking opportunities.

Our goal is to bring together professionals, educators, families, and advocates to collaborate and share insights, fostering a stronger support network for our youth. We aim to provide an exceptional platform for interaction with experts, contribution to a more empathetic mental health environment, and the exploration of comprehensive strategies that address the unique challenges faced by adolescents today.

The conference will delve into crucial topics such as the impact of digital landscapes on mental health, resilience-building techniques, the importance of collaborative care, and the role of advocacy in shaping effective support systems. Through keynote presentations, interactive sessions, and workshops, we intend to equip participants with the latest tools and knowledge to positively influence adolescent well-being.

We are thrilled to announce our current lineup of distinguished speakers, each bringing a wealth of experience and specialized knowledge to the discussion:

  •  Dr. Renata Nero, PhD., from the Ashley Jadine Foundation, sharing insights on "The Link Between Social Media and Suicide in Adolescents."
  •  William "Eddy" Schedule, Executive Director of Deblin Health Concepts, addressing "The Coming Storm" in adolescent mental health.

  • Casey Schedule, Stratford Teach & Basketball Coach
  • Courtney Williamson, Executive Director of Behavioral Health Advocates of Texas, contributing her expertise on policy and advocacy's role in mental health.

Join us at the Nurturing Mental Health in Adolescents Conference to play an integral part in shaping a brighter future for adolescent mental health. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of our youth, guiding them towards a healthier, more resilient tomorrow.
