The Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion host­ed a webi­nar, Fram­ing Youth Men­tal Health for Well-Being and Oppor­tu­ni­ty, on May 31, 2023. The event dis­cussed how advo­cates can com­mu­ni­cate effec­tive­ly about youth men­tal health and engage deci­sion-mak­ers in seek­ing solutions.

The webi­nar was built on a recent Foun­da­tion sum­mit on youth men­tal health. It fea­tured research insights from the Frame­Works Insti­tute and respons­es from young pan­elists on how to advance solu­tions for youth men­tal health and well-being.

Pol­i­cy­mak­ers, pro­fes­sion­als and advo­cates had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to gain insights and ask ques­tions about how to effec­tive­ly com­mu­ni­cate about men­tal health issues. Par­tic­i­pants gained a deep­er under­stand­ing of how to frame men­tal health con­cerns in a way that pro­motes pos­i­tive change and encour­ages action.

Pan­elists included:

  • Kate Shatzkin, Asso­ciate Direc­tor, Strate­gic Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, The Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion (Mod­er­a­tor)
  • Marisa Ger­stein Pineau, Direc­tor of Research Appli­ca­tion, The Frame­Works Institute
  • Isabel Ohakam­ma, Youth Nation­al Sci­en­tif­ic Coun­cil of Ado­les­cence Mem­ber, Cen­ter for the Devel­op­ing Adolescent
