Youth in Crisis: Supporting Youth through School and Clinic-based Mental Health Programs

Date: April 3, 2024 | 10:30 am

In this presentation, we will address how youths facing traumatic episodes have developed unhealthy coping skills that negatively impact their academic success and developmental growth. We will offer helpful strategies for addressing trauma and grief, substance abuse, and other barriers that can negatively affect student learning, growth, and development through school- and clinic-based mental health programs.

Learning Objectives:

  1. To provide strategies for working collaboratively with school and community partners to provide a systemic approach to mitigate the effects of adverse childhood experiences on student learning and growth.
  2. To increase awareness of how to effectively implement trauma-informed practices through a school-based mental health program.
