Limited Capacity seats available

Presenters from a variety of backgrounds will highlight how "code-switching" and "masking" become a form of survival and self-care, helping BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and neurodivergent people live authentically and tell their stories. This session will feature the voices of BIPOC, LGBTQIA+ and neurodivergent mental health providers, talking about their lived experiences and how to support self-discovery, commitment to self-care, and survival in a world still learning about BIPOC, the gender spectrum and neurodiversity. This session presents strategies for incorporating self reflection, artistic forms of expression and/or embracing the geeky into our work with BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and neurodivergent youth in an effort to help affirm who they are and guide them in finding their voice.
