Our biennial conference is less than two weeks away on Saturday, April 4th. There are lots of great workshops to choose from, but I want to especially mention our two parent speakers who will set the tone for the day. Lisa A. is one of the named plaintiffs in the Rosie D. case. She will talk about her son and her experience with the mental health system. Rose C. is a PHP board member and a former member of out Walpole group. She will talk about her own childhood, raising her daughters and her experience with the child welfare and mental health systems. We are grateful to Lisa and Rose for their willingness to share their stories. We hope you can join us for the day.
PS=Thank you so much to those of you who donated to our holiday fundraising drive. We are pleased to report that we raised $68,028 toward our annual goal of $110,000.
