Limited Capacity full

In order to effectively assess, ally and assist in supporting young folx mental wellness we must consider our own emotional landscape, the spectrum of wellness to illness, and how that may present differently for individuals with different experiences and backgrounds. When providers notice that youth may be struggling internally, where do they go from there? And how do they make sure that the line of questioning honors youth self-determination while supporting safety, in addition to celebrating the intersection of their identities this process?

The questions we may ask during assessment include our own biases and identities, experiences with mental illness and wellness, and cultural values. This workshop will support participants with tools to explore what they may bring to the process of assessment with youth and provide recommendations for allying and assisting in ways that affirm and celebrate the identities of all humans.
