Whole Child Whole Community Conference

Learn how our community can create safe places and build healthy relationships for students and families to thrive.

Now more than ever, educators and youth care providers are looking for tools to support the whole child and their mental health needs, and our school and community leaders seek to build their knowledge to better advocate and address systemic barriers with hopes to build a more equitable future.

Focusing on the whole child requires the whole community to come together. As the largest mental health provider in schools, Communities In Schools of San Antonio is excited to announce the inaugural Whole Child Whole Community Conference- a day dedicated to learning, community building, and wellness. 

Join us for this cross-sector collaborative effort and together we will build an equitable path to life success for future generations.
