Youth Mental Health Concerns

Youth Mental Health Concerns
Add to Calendar

Concerns about mental health issues among young people were increasing before the start of the pandemic in 2020, and the level of concern has only gone up in the last two years. Rates of depression and anxiety have climbed, and many educators say they have seen increases in problems with students’ behavior as a result of big changes in daily living. 
How are children doing, and how should schools address these challenges? Join us as Alan Borsuk, Marquette Law School’s senior fellow in law and public policy, speaks with Hugh Davis, executive director of Wisconsin Family Ties; Tracy Oerter, director of Community Based Mental and Behavioral Health, Children’s Wisconsin; and Brenda Mikell, director of counseling, Rufus King High School in Milwaukee.
The virtual discussion will be available via the “Watch Now” button above at 12:15 p.m. on March 8. 
Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education events continue to be virtual for now.

This program is presented by Marquette Law School's Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education and the Marquette University College of Education.
