Recognizing and Responding to Youth in Distress ECHO

Sessions will be held biweekly on Tuesdays, starting May 2nd through Jun 20th, 2023 from 12-1pm EST (last 2 sessions are weekly)


This interactive, web-based learning series will provide tools for school staff, coaches, and community youth leaders to better support the increased number of youth under stress and in distress. Nationally and in our communities, youth are experiencing continuing increases in anxiety, depression, trauma, and suicidal ideation, to where we are now in a widely recognized youth mental health crisis. Our goal is to provide information and resources to help those in the community address this crisis that is affecting schools, camps, faith communities, and teams today, along with an opportunity for discussing de-identified situations and receiving peer support.


At the conclusion of this learning activity, (at least 75% of) participants will be able to accurately assess mental distress and risk of harm in students in order to ensure the most responses that will best support mental health needs including overall coordination of care.
