Mentoring & Mental Health – Fostering Progress
Despite the growing prevalence of mental health needs in today’s world, mental health education, support, and resources are still greatly needed. Youth impacted by foster care face additional barriers to continuity of care and stressors due to disrupted placements, separation from important relationships, and constant change. When it comes to mentoring and mental health, it is important for mentors and mentoring organizations to strengthen our understanding of mental health and identify the roles that we play to be of support to young people. In this session, we discuss mental health training recommendations for mentors, confidentiality, and explore unique considerations for supporting youth impacted by foster care and mental health.
