In the dynamic landscape of today’s educational environments, adolescents in resource-poor settings face unique challenges that can affect their mental well-being. Titled “Unlocking Potential: Holistic Approaches to Supporting Adolescent Mental Health in School Settings,” this talk delves into the potential transformative power of collaborative efforts between schools, families and communities to create a robust support system for adolescent mental health. Through real-world case studies and evidence-based insights, this talk highlights innovative approaches that bridge the gap between limited resources and effective supports for cultivating resilience and emotional well-being within school settings in resource-constrained settings.

This event is also occurring in person in the Brown Lounge.  Registration is only required for those attending virtually.
