Promoting Mental Health Literacy Among Economically Vulnerable Youth


Mar 29, 2019 5:15pm ‐ Mar 29, 2019 5:45pm


Credits: None available.

Description

Youth from economically vulnerable backgrounds encounter significant barriers to mental health treatment. This session highlights a research project evaluating the effectiveness of an after-school mental health literacy intervention on adolescents’ mental health knowledge, stigma, attitudes toward seeking help, and hope. The presenters will discuss the framework of mental health literacy as a pivotal step in addressing the discrepancy between rates of mental health diagnoses in children and individuals treated.

  • Counselors will learn psychoeducational approaches to working with the adolescent population.
  • Attendees will develop a more thorough understanding of adolescence, including prevalence of mental health concerns and barriers to treatment in the adolescent population.
  • Attendees will develop an understanding about the scope of mental health literacy, previous mental health literacy research, and future directions.
