#SaludTues Tweetchat: Improving School Climates for Children and Teen’s Mental Health

Our nation’s youth are struggling with mental health more than ever before. This crisis is fueled by excessive social media use, climate change, gun violence (now a top cause of death for young people), and the opioid epidemic. Further, many families, especially Latinos, lack access to mental healthcare resources due to stigma, cost, or long wait times to see a provider.

Under these circumstances, how can schools and parents help promote mental wellbeing among children and teens this upcoming school year and beyond?

Join Salud America! and use #SaludTues on Tuesday, August 1, 2023, to discuss how to improve school climates for children and teens’ mental health, especially for students of color.
