Host:Other
Date:2/7/2024
Start Time:3:00 p.m. ET
End Time:4:00 p.m. ET
Description:

On February 7, 2024, from 3:00-4:00 p.m. ET, join the Mountain Plains Mental Health Technology Transfer Center for a webinar titled, Recognizing, Preventing, and Treating Youth Depression in Schools.

“Approximately 2.7 million youths, aged 3-17 years, meet criteria for a depressive disorder (Bitsko et al., 2022). Yet, most youths and their families struggle to recognize signs and symptoms of depression and get connected with appropriate services. Schools play a critical role in promoting the well-being and mental health of youths, and provide a natural avenue for identifying, preventing, and treating youth depression. This training will provide resources to school professionals on identifying depression in school-aged youth and provide strategies to address cognitive, behavioral, and physiological symptoms of depression. We will also provide free resources to help in the identification and treatment of depressive disorders. An important emphasis will focus on incorporating cultural beliefs, values, and behaviors into clinical work with diverse youths and their families.”
