Mental Health and Homelessness: A Closer Look

Hosted by: Institute for Children, Poverty, and Homelessness

Homeless high school students are struggling to meet their basic emotional and mental health needs, while faced with meeting their most basic needs -- and it takes a tremendous toll. To mark Mental Health Awareness Month, ICPH will explore its recent data report, "More than a Place to Sleep," shedding light on the traumatic burden homelessness places on students. Join ICPH's Senior Policy Analyst Anna Shaw-Amoah and Chief of Staff Liz Cohen as they take a closer look at the mental health struggles this vulnerable population faces, highlighting existing social and emotional supports and considering ways to increase access to trauma-informed services for teens.
