The pressure to meet unrealistic expectations is difficult to maintain, especially for young people, and it’s taking a toll on their mental health. From juggling the demands of academics, athletics, and other extra-curricular activities, to keeping up appearances on social media, young people are under a lot of stress to overachieve. While the pursuit of perfection isn’t new, it is getting more intense.
NAMI Keystone Pennsylvania’s annual Child, Adolescent, and Transition Age Youth Mental Health Conference, Pursuit of Perfection and the Impact on Youth Mental Health, will address the research and trends related to perfectionism, the challenges young people are facing, and how adults can offer support in reframing the concept.
The conference will take place on Friday, February 10, 2023, at The Westin Pittsburgh. Continuing Education Credits and Act 48 Credits are being offered.
The deadline for online registration has been extended until Friday, January 27, 2023.
