Webinar – “Meeting the Mental Health Needs of Youth Before Crisis: Utilizing Warmlines”
Wednesday, April 5, 2023, 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
A free webinar about youth mental health crisis prevention and using warmlines to increase access to mental health services for young people who are struggling
Join Mental Health American (MHA) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) for “Meeting the Mental Health Needs of Youth Before Crisis: Utilizing Warmlines” on April 5 from 2:30 to 4 p.m.
Having someone to talk with and finding resources can help prevent youth struggling with their mental health from reaching a point of crisis. Warmlines can offer a different approach to care and support for many youths experiencing mental health concerns or living with a serious mental illness.
In this free, 90-minute webinar, presenters from MHA Minnesota and MHA of Montana will discuss:
- Best practices for focusing on youth mental health crisis prevention
- How warmlines are providing new approaches to care and support in order to address the lack of available mental health resources for youth and young adults
- What warmlines are doing for youth with mental health concerns and how peer support plays an important role
Live closed captioning and American Sign Language interpreters will be available for this webinar.
