Gary M. Blau, PhD
Office of the Assistant Secretary for Mental Health and Substance Use
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, SAMHSA
The COVID-19 pandemic has had unprecedented impacts on the mental health of America’s youth and families and has exacerbated the significant mental health challenges that existed prior to the pandemic. The Surgeon General’s recent Advisory on Protecting Youth Mental Health calls for a swift and coordinated response to this crisis as the nation continues to battle COVID-19. What is our current Federal response to this crisis?
In this webinar, Dr. Blau will describe current initiatives of the US Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to help children and youth. He will also describe related initiatives of the Administration and Congress, and will outline steps to fully address youth mental health challenges across the country. This program is offered in partnership with the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis, on their Open Classroom platform.
