Do you know a teen suffering from mental illness? In 2014, the National Alliance on Mental Illness reported that 1 in 5 teens (ages 13-18) have, or will have a serious mental illness. As part of the 2016 California State Library (CSL) Mental Health Initiative, library staff and youth advocates are invited to learn more about mental illness with Michelle Carlson and Cheryl Eskin from Teen Line (www.teenlineonline.org), a teen-to-teen hotline that provides education and support for teens.
At the end of this webinar, participants will:
- Learn methods to decrease the stigma around teen mental illness through education and real life stories
- Be familiar with tools for talking with teens who are struggling
- Learn about opportunities to become a teen advocate
This webinar will be of interest to: all library staff who works with teens and those interested in learning more about teen mental illness.
