Rates of mental illness and suicide have risen markedly among teens in recent years, as has substance use. Given the importance of early screening and access to resources, leaders are working with schools and taking new approaches to get teens help when they need it most.
This webinar will explore:
  • Cross-sector strategies to prevent teen substance use and suicide
  • The role of school-based health services in providing behavioral health care
  • A program that brings evidence-based strategies to school professionals to help them address student behavioral health
  • Data showing how school connectedness can serve as a protective factor for students
draft agenda is available on our website.
