Mental Health and Homeless Students: A Closer Look

Watch a recording of the webinar.

Homeless high school students are struggling to not only find a place to sleep, but to meet their emotional and mental health needs. To mark Mental Health Awareness Month, ICPH more closely explored its recent data report, More Than a Place to Sleep, shedding light on the traumatic toll homelessness takes on students.

ICPH’s Senior Policy Analyst Anna Shaw-Amoah and Chief of Staff Liz Cohen took 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.
