Keynote: Turning Pain into Purpose

After trying to find help for her once joyful son and rap artist, including wilderness therapy and therapeutic boarding school, Charles met heroin, a love/hate affair that ended with his suicide in June 2015.

This presentation is about her journey to healing by dragging an unpopular topic into the spotlight, how giving back has helped her heal, and how a blog community that came together in their shared pain has saved lives
in the most surprising and unconventional of ways.

Breakout: The Emotionally Naked Truth about Student Suicide

Dr. Dipesh Navsaria: Mutual trust and respect key to Wisconsin Idea –  Diversity, Equity & Inclusion – UW–Madison

Tuesday Keynote Speaker
Dr. Dipesh Navsaria - MPH, MSLIS, MD

Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Human Development & Family Studies,
University of Wisconsin–Madison
Keynote: Early Experiences Elevate Everything: Childhood Adversity and Toxic Stress

Dr. Navsaria will discuss the critical importance of the first thousand days of life and the key role human relationships and interactions play in that time period. The concepts of toxic stress and how early adversity leads to lifelong issues will be reviewed, with practical examples and a discussion of research that highlights these areas. Broad policy and programmatic principles that may help address the issue will also be discussed, providing a practical framework for those who work with children and families.
