The Naomi Ruth Cohen Institute Announces its Community Mental Health Conference

“RAISING RESILIENT CHILDREN: PRIORITIZING THEIR MENTAL HEALTH”

SUNDAY, JUNE 4TH 9:30 A.M. TO 3:15 P.M. AT BETH EMET THE FREE SYNAGOGUE
1224 Dempster Street
Evanston, IL

WE ARE ONE OF THE PILLARS OF THIS CONFERENCE

This year's conference is designed not only to inform and teach, but also to examine the challenges and opportunities facing our children today.

Rabbi Eleanor G. Smith, M.D., presently an Internist at Northwestern Medicine in Evanston, will give the opening remarks. She will be followed by panel presenters.

Dr. Louis Kraus is a Women's Board Professor, Director and Founder of AARTS Center, and Chief of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Rush University Medical Center. "Children can be amazingly resilient, whether from trauma, development delays, educational struggles or mental illness. They are young and fragile. Prevention and early intervention are key to helping our children."

Dr. Mark Reinecke is Chief of the Division of Psychology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. "Resilience: The ability to respond to life's travails with poise and confidence is among the most valuable gifts."

Christine Walker was inspired to create the Chasing Hope Foundation to support families like her own who are raising a child with autism and related brain disorders. Her son Schuyler is a seasoned advocate speaking at the Illinois State House and has made several trips to Washington D.C. helping elected and appointed officials better understand issues of mental health, special education and brain research.

The Moderator of this conference is Dr. Tiffany Masson, Campus Dean of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, Chicago Campus.

Following a question and answer period, registrants are invited to choose from 19 discussion groups led by highly qualified professionals in their field.
