Striking a balance: Tips and tricks for effective youth engagement

Many campuses have innovative mental health services and programs in place for their students, but sometimes struggle with student engagement. Some challenges involve building awareness of these services and ensuring that they meet evolving student needs. This webinar will talk about engaging students in promotion, design, and delivery. We will be discussing some best practices in outreach and engagement, including lessons learned from our national youth capacity building programs. Finally, we’ll share ideas about student co-creation of these programs and necessary steps for sustained engagement.
