Strengthening Sisterhood: Empowering Girls to Resist Societal Pressures, Fight Unrealistic Media Standards, and Develop a Healthy Body Image

This session will address these important issues, with a focus on helping girls develop leadership skills to combat and revive a generation that has become exhausted by body bashing, social media saturation, and the myth of perfection.

Self-Harm, Suicide & Social Media: Helping Students Ask for Help

This presentation will focus on helping students prevent, intervene, and break the code of silence regarding self-injurious and suicidal behavior. Participants will gain insight into the darker side of social media, including sensitive self-disclosures and anonymous communities of support, along with school-wide strategies to promote mental health literacy and encourage students to reach out for help.
