About This Event

Health challenges and disparities such as trauma, access to quality healthcare, chronic disease, and mental health exist for youth in Indiana’s rural and urban counties. These challenges among youth have huge implications for a healthy well-being and impact school attendance/dropout rates, early mortality, increased opportunities for criminal activities and incarceration, especially for those from minority communities. Learn about these challenges and how youth workers and youth-serving programs can influence efforts to close these gaps. This session will provide essential information and examples of model programs that can be utilized in creating new or enhancing existing programs to increase awareness, allocate resources, and improve access to services and programs for Indiana’s youth.
