Adolescent Mental Health and Well-being

Throughout 2018, the Region 5 Adolescent Health Network partnered with over 25 organizations to host 11 webinars, each with a focus on adolescent mental health and well-being. The webinars featured nearly 40 subject matter experts and a wealth of resources. They are intended for a broad audience of adolescent health and social service providers and others that work with and for young people; information in many may be helpful to caring adults and young people themselves.

The linked PDF document contains links to the webinar recordings, presentation slides, and resources shared throughout the series.

Special thanks to the National Network of State Adolescent Health Coordinators  for posting webinar descriptions and recordings from the 2018 Series on their website here: http://nnsahc.org/index.php/tools/regionv2018

Summer Project Advocacy Project.

One discussion point that was very clear throughout this process is that legislators and school administrators are not aware of what goes on in physical education classes. Many of our policy makers have the perception of PE classes based on their own experiences. In many cases that perception is based on outdated practices. We need to change their paradigm.
