Help your child thrive.

Children and teens are experiencing an unprecedented wave of adversity. And, when your child struggles with anxiety, depression, or ADHD, it can be difficult to know how to help.

That’s why we’re bringing parents an opportunity to learn about the mind-body-heart approaches that have been shown to support child mental health.

Discover simple ways to nurture your child’s resilience 


Presented by nationally-recognized leaders in the field of natural mental health, NMH Resilient Kids Summit empowers you with the safe, affordable, evidence-based strategies that can help your child thrive.

There are no live dates to plug into your calendar. Simply watch the sessions whenever they fit into your busy schedule.

Thanks to the generous support of the Minneapolis Foundation, each workshop is just $25.

In light of so many recent and tragic events and the lack of access to mental health care, we've made this summit free of charge.
