University of Maryland Training Institutes
Connie Stewart and other team members recently attended and spoke at the Systems of Care Conference in Washington, D.C. For more than 30 years, this biennial event has been the premier convening of leaders in systems of care for children, youth, and young adults with behavioral health challenges and their families, and the University of Maryland, Baltimore is honored to continue and expand this tradition. The event is sponsored by the University of Maryland School of Social Work and hosted by The Institute for Innovation and Implementation.
Youth Field Trip
Lakeia took some of the youth to the Memphis Escape Rooms for a group field trip! There's nothing quite like stepping into a new escape room experience. It consumes your senses all at once, and you feel like you've been transported to another world.
We don't want to take that away from you. That's why we keep the inside of our rooms secret: to preserve the awe and wonder for you to experience.
As a result, you won't find pictures of our rooms here or anywhere else. So come experience them for yourself, and see how we are providing the most creative, immersive, and well-maintained escape rooms anywhere.
On June 23, our staff had a table at the 1st International Fest, sponsored by The Hope Center. This festival celebrated the many customs and cultures in our area from all over the world! Check out the pictures from this exciting day!
2nd Annual Teen Op, 2018
On June 21, we held our 2nd Annual Teen Op, Opportunities for Leadership Conference at Brown Missionary Baptist Church.

Don't Stand By, Stand Up
May is National Mental Health Awareness Month, and to bring awareness to Mental Health in Desoto County, we held an Anti-Bullying Poster Contest and Rally at the Olive Branch YMCA. Matt Leach, father and co-founder of Andy's Voice, was our guest speaker. He spoke about the recent suicide of his 12 year old son, Andy Leach, as a result of the bullying that he faced on a daily basis. Andy's Voice is paving the way for change in the state of Mississippi and how bullying is dealt with for our children.
Special thanks to the YMCA for allowing us to use their space, Matt Leach for speaking on such a difficult topic, and the Olive Branch Police Department for their attendance and support!
Healthy Kids Day
We joined the YMCA of Memphis & the Mid-South branches in celebrating YMCA Healthy Kids Day®! Healthy Kids Day is Y-USA’s annual, nationwide initiative designed to inspire all youth, parents, and caregivers – regardless of membership status – to get active and make healthy choices over the summer and beyond!
We were able to reach out to many members of our community and offer our services, partnerships, and tell the community about our upcoming events!

Last month, thousands of youth and adults across the United States and around the world took action to stand out, speak up, and seize control against Big Tobacco. We visited Lake Cormorant High School to discuss tobacco and asked the students to sign a pledge to be Tobacco Free! Check out some of the pictures!
Parade of Lights
NFusion youth had a blast getting ready for the Parade of Lights! We are so proud of their hard work and enthusiasm. It was cold but our youth had warm hearts as they tossed candy and goodies to the children in the crowd and spread the message that "Everyone is a Gift to Someone." Thank you Southaven Chamber of Commerce for your hard work planning the parade!
The NFusion team had a wonderful expereince on Saturday at the A-Fair in Hernando, MS. We met so many people, many of whom reached out about themselves or a loved one who could benefit from our services! We loved being able to network and give out our NFusion promotional items! The community of DeSoto County was so open and eager to learn more about what we do and how we are working to reach youth in our county! Two of our staff also attended the Hope Center launch party event at Horn Lake Intermediate School as we were invited by our friend and community stakeholder Stacy Dodd- He is doing amazing things and is also excited about networking with NFusion- we appreciate his support!
