A SAMHSA sponsored webinar developed under contract by the National Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health, will took place Tuesday, August 6, 2019 at 3:00pm Eastern Time called Implementing Effective Systems of Care for Children, Youth, and Transition-Aged Youth with or At-Risk of SED in Rural Communities

 

In 2017, 4.5 percent (11.2 million) of Americans 18 years or older had an SMI, and it is estimated that 6.8 to 11.5 percent of children and youth have an SED.

Discussion will include research findings related to engaging students and families in rural educational settings, cultural considerations, and strategies for engaging youth in remote communities.
