Public Awareness

The Montana Academy Foundation aspires to be a significant voice in a growing national conversation about character development in general and about delayed or interrupted maturity in particular.  The Foundation pursues this aspiration through the publication of its newsletter, Sky Lines, through an annual conference, and through collaborative efforts with other organizations working in the field.

Sky Lines is distributed twice a year and provides updates on the Foundation’s activities, along with articles and perspectives from professionals working in the field of adolescent mental health and from members of the extended Montana Academy family.

On October 12-13, 2017, the Montana Academy Foundation sponsored the first of a series of conferences on Immaturity, Character Development, and Treatment of Adolescents.

This first conference was held at the Grouse Mountain Lodge in Whitefish, MT, and was attended by more than 70 mental health professionals. Distinguished practitioners in the field of adolescent mental and behavioral health addressed central issues related to attachment disorders in adolescents.

The Foundation will soon announce the dates of a second conference. This meeting will focus on “Teenage Anxiety: Symptoms, Treatments, and Root Causes.” Please check back to the “What’s New” section of our Home page for further information.
