WEBINAR: Mental Health Resources for Marginalized Youth and Families


Since the elections, calls to Illinois and national mental health and social service agency hotlines have dramatically increased. Children from a variety of marginalized groups are reporting high levels of anxiety, despondency, fear, and high emotional stress. Youth who have been affected include frequently marginalized youth, such as refugee, immigrant, undocumented, LGBTQ, and religious and racial minority youth.

In response to this public health emergency, leaders mobilized quickly to address this crisis and ramp up services to support marginalized children in these challenging times. On November 18, 2016, the Illinois Childhood Trauma Coalition and The Center for Childhood Resilience hosted a webinar entitled, You Are Not Alone: Mental Health Resources for Marginalized Youth and Families.
