“Youth Mental Health: Finding a Common Language” Lunch & Learn with Mary diGiovanna

This Lunch and Learn will give an overview of the current statistics of youth mental health needs in our community. We will discuss the most prevalent symptoms and disorders, and explore the ways that social media can educate and connect as well as misinform and divide, with a goal of building a common language for both youth and caregivers for talking about mental health.
