YRBS Event: from RISK to RESILIENCE - Understanding & supporting local teens

You are invited to a community forum and live taping:

When:            Wednesday, July 31

5:00pm - Reception with complimentary hors d'oeuvres 

6:00pm - Presentation and discussion

Where:          Idea Center®,1375 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH

Join us as we go behind the numbers from the latest results of this year’s Youth Risk Behavior Survey with some of Cuyahoga County’s leading experts and advocates for the well-being of adolescents.

We’ll discuss the troubling increases in depressive symptoms, suicidal thoughts, and missing school due to safety concerns among middle schoolers in the county. We will also explore the increase of vaping among 7th and 8th graders.

By attending this special event you will also hear about ways to strengthen the safety net for at-risk adolescents and what teachers, principals, and parents can do to help reverse these trends.

From Risk to Resilience will be moderated by ideastream’s Marlene Harris-Taylor and will feature an expert panel representing local adolescent advocacy agencies, neighborhood organizations, and researchers from Case Western Reserve University. Members of the audience will be able to submit questions for the panel to address during the presentation.

The event will be recorded for future broadcast on WVIZ/PBS and 90.3 WCPN ideastream.
