About the Session:


The positive mental health of students is always a priority but of even greater importance during the pandemic and the return to school.  This session will provide an overview of some of the mental health concerns for youth as a result of COVID-19, help participants understand the unique vulnerability of youth due to adolescent brain development, and provide a strengths-based positive psychology approach to supporting the mental health of high school students.
