How Afterschool Programs Can Respond to the Youth Mental Health Crisis

Tuesday, 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm

Since the return of young people to school and afterschool programs after the COVID-19 shutdowns, there have been major concerns raised by educators and youth workers regarding youth mental health.

This webinar will offer a deep dive into the issue of youth mental health (stress, trauma, anxiety, and depression) and how best to respond to this in afterschool programs. This webinar will feature developmental psychologist, Dr. Gil Noam, Associate Professor at Harvard Medical School and founder of Partnerships in Education and Resilience (PEAR). Dr. Noam will discuss how these issues manifest, who we should involve if we have concerns, and what strategies we can use in afterschool to help alleviate these issues. Participants can add their comments and ask questions of the presenter.

Date and time: Tuesday, January 10, 2023 | 1 – 3 p.m.
