Registration open for Adolescent Health Initiative’s 2023 Connection Session
Registration is now open for the Adolescent Health Initiative’s 2023 Connection Session, Intersections: Supporting youth, their identities and their mental health needs across disciplines.
The 2023 Connection Session is set to be held on Wednesday, Feb. 22 from noon-5 p.m. in a hybrid format, with the in-person portion of this event being hosted at the Eastern Michigan University (EMU) Student Center.
The event will work to increase adolescent health professionals’ capacity to support adolescents’ mental health needs through culturally responsive, youth-centered practices. The 2023 Connection Session will support attendees in developing actionable strategies around being an “askable adult” as it relates to mental health, acquiring community-centered resources and building cross-discipline collaboration. Centering the voices of communities marginalized by systems of power will be at the event’s core and will equip attendees to better understand mental health in the context of intersectionality.
