Understanding and Advancing Mental Health Equity for Young Adults

Young adults of transition age have elevated rates of mental health challenges, yet they often do not receive services, and few interventions have been designed or found effective for this population. This puts young adults of transition age at greater risk for homelessness, justice involvement, and education and employment challenges. These challenges are even more acute for youth from vulnerable populations.

This webinar focuses on strategic practices that health departments and mental health agencies can take to begin eliminating health disparities by advancing mental health equity. Presented by Kristin Thorp and Lydia Proulx, Youth MOVE National.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the link between health disparities and mental health equity.
  • Gain knowledge about the unique mental health equity challenges facing young adults of transition age.
  • Learn practical strategies for advancing mental health equity for youth and young adults.
