Webinar: Mental Health Education Roundtable: A Collaborative Discussion Among A Parent, Advocate, & Educator
Location: Online Via PsychU.org
Description: Evidence suggests that half of all chronic mental illnesses begin by age 14. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “focusing on establishing healthy behaviors during childhood is more effective than trying to change unhealthy behaviors during adulthood”. In July 2018, the State of New York became of the first to require mental health instruction within the school system, as part of the health education curriculum. During this webinar, Michael Townsend, MA, LMSW, Amy Molloy, MSW, and Jessica Hull, MS Health Education, will have a roundtable discussion regarding the current state of Mental Health Education and review the successes and challenges of its implementation in the state of New York.
