Youth is (not) Madness

The annual “Youth is (not)  Madness” conference on youth mental health is a professional gathering where current issues in the field are discussed while Young Dragons serve as hosts for the networking space of various experts who work with young people.

The youth mental health conference is intended for youth workers and other professionals who work with young people. We provide knowledge and tools to facilitate work with young people in mental distress through lectures and workshops, while also raising awareness and breaking stereotypes. We invite experts from abroad and Slovenia to the conference and connect key actors in the treatment of young people.

Youth is (not) Madness – In relationships we are human (2022)

Youth is (not) Madness – Do my thoughts still make sense? (2021)
