2022 ALSSO Conference
Mental Health Speaker & Former Division II Athlete
We are thrilled to announce that the 2022 ALSSO Conference will be held on October 20 and 21 at Wallace State Community College in Hanceville, AL. Mrs. Ivy Watts, Mental Health Empowerment Speaker, will be the keynote speaker at this event. Proposal and registration information will be shared at a later date.
Keynote Speaker Bio: Ivy Watts, a former Division II All-American track athlete, who appeared to have it all together struggled daily with her mental health, in silence. After finally seeking help, Ivy is now dedicated to promoting mental wellness and reducing mental health stigma by sharing her story through public speaking and her blog, Beautifully Simply You. Ivy, who is Certified in Mental Health First Aid and has her Masters in Public Health, empowers others to speak their truths, know that they are not alone, learn the beauty of self-love and find the strength to keep fighting for their tomorrows.
