SOLICITATION LETTER (SPONSOR, ADVERTISER OR SCHOLARSHIP PROVIDER)

Dear ____,

I am a Conference Committee Member with the Association for Training on Trauma and Attachment in Children (ATTACh). We are excited to host our 2021 Annual Conference, Together We Heal: Restore. Relate. Educate. from September 30 – October 2 in Minneapolis, MN. This is our first in-person event since the pandemic—a global public health concern that exposed thousands of our nation’s children and youth to higher-than-normal incidents of life-altering trauma.

Mental health counseling or therapy by a professional trained to recognize and treat trauma in children is critical to assessing a child’s trauma and preparing them for a healing journey. The Together We Heal conference helps build the capacity and knowledge of mental health, occupational therapy and other professionals and staff who provide treatment, education and care to children living with trauma, attachment, mental health or developmental disorders.

Additionally, the conference addresses the needs of parents/caregivers and families who have a child or youth who has experienced trauma. Often, they feel isolated and as if no one else understands what they are going through. This is one of only a few nationwide gatherings of its kind with a TRACK especially for parents/caregivers and families where they can receive positive and affirming education, direct support, hands-on wellness/self-care strategies and a safe space to share their thoughts, while learning from professionals and networking with others whose lived experience may help them navigate through their child’s healing process.

WE NEED YOUR HELP. With the number of children impacted by trauma and attachment issues at an ever-increasing rate, it is imperative that we work together to create the best possible outcomes for these children. Please consider becoming a Sponsor, Advertiser or Scholarship Provider for the ATTACh annual conference. Levels and payment details can be found on the conference website at https://attach.org/attach-annual-conference-2021/ or for assistance, contact ATTACh directly at conference@attach.org or 612-861-4222.

This event is the organization’s primary education and fundraising effort. Your support can make it possible for professionals and parents/caregivers who have limited funds to attend the conference as well as provide ATTACh with the ability to establish year-round development and implementation of high-quality, expert-led trainings, resources, tools, workshops and events.

I look forward to speaking with you soon about your ability to contribute to the ATTACh Annual Conference.

Sincerely,
