About the Session

TARGET AUDIENCE: ALL K-12 TEACHERS, PRE SERIVCE TEACHERS, LEADERS, EDUCATIONAL ASSISTANTS, AND PARENTS.

Approximately 1 in 5 youth worldwide will experience a mental illness before they turn 25. Many will experience significant and substantial life challenges that may require help. This makes adolescence a critical time for mental health promotion, prevention, early identification, and intervention. Not addressing these issues early and effectively may lead to negative short and long term outcomes. Evidence-based mental health literacy is a scientifically-established effective foundation for all mental health improvements.
