Presentations and Seminars

Community Presentations & Professional Clinical Training

Edgewood would like to present to your organization about relevant, Mental Health Topics that impact your place of business or clients you serve.  Creating environments where either staff or members of the community can learn more about the issues that are directly affecting them as well as give them an opportunity to create resolutions that are unique to their situations is invaluable.

Mainstreaming mental health issues is an essential piece of our Mission at Edgewood. That’s why we give presentations and seminars in Naperville and the surrounding community on many topics that can affect individuals, families, and the systems that work with them. Over the past 10 years, we have presented for: Naperville District 203, Naperville District 204, Wheaton District 200, Plainfield District 202, Valley View School District, Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce and the IL Association of School Social Workers. We have also presented for countless other not-for-profit groups and local community organizations looking to educate their staff and families they serve.

Our CEO, Adam Russo, was able to speak at TEDx Naperville.  His talk is below.
