Family Education Conference
YES you CAN(S)!

presented by Idaho Federation of Families for Children's Mental Health

Welcome to the first annual Idaho Federation of Families parent and youth education spring conference, YES you CAN(S)! and Yes YOU(th) cans! It is the first, and hopefully last, time this conference will be presented 100% virtually. We all look forward to resuming our relationships in person and we embrace the adaptations that are ahead!

Join us for our parent event focused on the CANS tool and developing effective plans of care for youth accessing mental health care in Idaho. During YES you CAN(S) speakers will help you understand the variety of options parents, providers, and youth have throughout the mental health journey.
Yes YOU(th) can!

An inspirational virtual conference for youth and youth serving organizations that is being presented by Youth Move Idaho and Idaho Federation of Families in partnership with Magellan Healthcare and other youth serving organizations.

This 2 day event will inspire and empower Idaho youth to improve the systems that serve them and create brighter futures for themselves, their peers, and their communities.

Resources for you
Caring for the siblings
in adoptive and foster care

Join Idaho author and TBRI Practitioner, Lisa Qualls, and her daughter, Annarose as they discuss caring for siblings in adoptive & foster families.

Adoptive and foster parents, we know you're doing your best to meet the needs of all the children in your family, and yet sometimes the original crew of kids may be overlooked. This can be harmful to the children and heartbreaking for the parents.
In this webinar, Lisa and Annarose Qualls will share their family's experience. We'll give you helpful insights and tips so you can intentionally meet the needs of ALL of your kids.

A recording will be available for a limited time to all registered guests.
The suggested donation for this event is $10 but ALL are welcome regardless of ability to donate.
