Have you had youth who struggle in your program and you can’t figure out why? Perhaps the answer lies beyond what’s visible and is instead in the realm of mental health. In this session, you will learn about the most common mental health issues among teens, including depression, anxiety, trauma, autism, and self-harming behaviors, and what you and your staff can do to help these precious youth.
