RRLC Webinar: FLX Kids Are Alright – Youth Mental Health Literacy Tools for Library Staff (Part II)
April 26 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
The FLX Kids are Alright initiative aims to improve mental health literacy for middle- and high-school aged youth in five counties in the Finger Lakes Region of New York. Through a unique partnership between Common Ground Health, Monroe County Library System, Pioneer Library System and the Rochester Regional Library Council, the initiative will directly engage youth in the creation of new mental health and well-being literacy resources to improve library collections and programming.
As a follow up to our first training in March, please join us for the reveal of the new mental health and well-being literacy resources developed by the youth from the FLX Kids Are Alright project. We will discuss how library staff can access and use these resources, to provide mental health support to youth and their families in the community. Library staff will also discuss how their library can support the launch of the project’s social media campaign for Mental Health Awareness in May using these new materials.
Presenters: Staff from Common Ground Health will lead the training. Phyllis Jackson is a Registered Nurse, health literacy expert, and the Community Wellness Project Manager. Alicia Evans is an expert in youth services and is the Healthy Schools Project Coordinator. Hannah Shippee is a Program Coordinator.
