This system of care is part of a national movement through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to improve the lives of children, youth, and young adults. OCP2's mission is to support the wellness, recovery, and resiliency of youth and young adults with mental health challenges and substance abuse.This year's event will convey OCP2's messaging about physical and emotion effects of trauma and how it can impact one's health across a lifetime.  During the event, guests will be treated to original music by "Face Tha Musik" with performers from Youth M.O.V.E. Broward and a special guest speaker.  The performers will be followed by a "Wellness Champions Award Recognition" ceremony that will recognize young people, families and community members who make a difference through their work and personal stories of hope and strength.By using the hashtag "IAmNotMyTrauma", Broward County youth and families who attend the event will have a chance to participate in a social media contest for a chance to win a brand new bike.
