Description

Teen Health Connection Teen Health Connection

In this event participants will enjoy a 60-minute play prepared by students from Northwest School of the Arts with vignettes about teen health issues including: dating violence, bullying, substance use, mental health and sexual health. The participants will then be led in a training that brings the issues in the play to practice.

This presentation will explore issues related to working with adolescents, particularly addressing issues related to mental health, bullying, substance use and sexual health. Participants will first view the play, The Big Picture, a youth initiative solely written and performed by adolescent youth, in partnership with Teen Health Connection. The Big Picture addresses the current trends and health related issues facing teenagers today, with a focus on positive behavioral and health choices. Building on examples from The Big Picture, the panel of presenters will discuss the issues that teenagers are facing today and the impact that these issues can have on them physically, emotionally and socially. This presentation also will focus on how medical providers, mental health providers, community stakeholders and the school system can all work together to help empower teenagers and to keep them safe, healthy and educated.
