NAEHCY: Mental Health Among Homeless Teens

10/28/18 | 2:00 PM-3:15 PM


Presenter: Amanda Ragnauth

This session will explore disparities in mental health outcomes between homeless high school students and their housed classmates. Homeless high schoolers are struggling to not only find a place to sleep, but to meet their mental, emotional, and physical health needs as they pursue educational goals necessary to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness. This session will explore data from NYC, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Mexico, and North Carolinas homeless high school students.
