Upcoming Webinar on the Mental Health Needs of Young Adults Experiencing Homelessness

Date/Time: Tuesday, September 19, 2017, 10am – 11am PT / 1pm – 2pm ET

This webinar will examine how young adults manage their mental health needs while homeless and outline the implications for programs providing mental health services for transition age youth. Featuring data from the Homeless Youth Risk and Resilience Survey, a new study of homeless young adults (age 18-26) gathered through drop-in centers and shelters in seven cities across the country, the webinar will also include the voices of youth who participated. Presenters will outline potential solutions to increase connection and supports for these young people through early identification and intersystem communication.
