Population-Level Approaches for SBHCs to Manage Chronic Stress in Urban Minority Students

Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
This session aims to provide a public health perspective on mitigating the pernicious impact of chronic stress on urban, minority youth. It will include an overview of the neuroscience of chronic stress in adolescents. It will also outline strategies for implementing school-wide chronic stress management programming and policies. The conceptual foundation for these approaches is the promotion of health equity. By ensuring high school completion, students challenged by living in disadvantaged communities will not only have better economic opportunities, but also the opportunity for a lifetime of better health.
Session Objectives: Describe the social determinants of chronic stress and mental health as it relates to urban minority youth. Integrate advances in neuroscience and adolescent development into their diagnostic assessments. Develop strategies to advance population outcomes.
