DuPage Institute Day 2023
The goal of the DuPage County Institute Day is to share physical education, health education, and driver education expertise, and to influence the educational instruction throughout the DuPage County and surrounding programs. This day provides the opportunity for attendees to increase communication, share information, and heighten the awareness for the importance of our children’s health, wellness, and safety.
The Illinois Human Performance Project’s session focuses on mental and emotional health—yours and the youth in your life. Here, you’ll find the following resources: adult impactor and youth mental health statistics, signs that someone needs mental health support, how to address performance anxiety, and more. We’re happy that you’re here to learn more about how to be a better mental health advocate!
