January 29 & 30: PEN Stress & Anxiety Symposium

Alternate text

Friday, January 29th and Saturday, January 30th
9:00 am – 4:00 pm with 5 – One Hour Sessions Each Day

This conference was created in response to pervasive levels of stress and anxiety in our culture, communities, families, schools, and individual experiences of day-to-day life. Now more than ever, people are in need of resources to support them in maintaining their mental-health and wellbeing.  PEN’s goal is to provide parents with information and tools that empower them to take care of themselves and teach their children to do the same.

We hope that the conference will leave people Refreshed and Renewed to begin 2021. Registration Coming Soon.
