Live Zoom Webinar

7:55 am - 1:30 pm CST

Psychiatry Review: Adolescent/Young Adult Mental Health; Intervention, Prevention and Resilience

This half day live webinar will provide best practices for healthcare professionals in areas that uniquely affect the mental health of children to young adults including social media usage, complex trauma and telehealth.  Hear from leading experts and participate in complex case based discussions.


This year’s Department of Psychiatry conference focuses on Adolescent and Young Adult Mental Health and key areas that uniquely affect these groups including social media usage, complex trauma and the growing use of telehealth.

With social media being a core fixture in teens and young adult lives, dependency and use will likely increase, considering the social distancing practices now necessary due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Providers and parents are faced with determining how much social media is appropriate given the rise of cyberbullying, internet gaming disorder, sleep disruption, and engagement with online communities that promote suicide, self-harm, and eating disordered behaviors. Healthcare providers in attendance will learn of the risks and benefits of social media use to the mental health of children and teens.

Secondly, complex developmental trauma often leads to long-lasting behavioral, psychological, and physiological problems into adulthood. Understanding how to best treat associated symptoms can provide critical clinical insight into mental health issues experienced by teens and young adults. Attendees will learn to identify the manifestations of complex developmental trauma, understand its impact on mental health, and learn best practices in the treatment of mental health symptoms associated with complex trauma.

Lastly, The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the reliance on telehealth to connect practitioners to their patients. Attendees will learn best practices in methods of utilizing telehealth and in interacting with teenage and young adult patients.


This conference is intended for primary care physicians, pediatricians, psychologists, nurses, psychiatrists and any other healthcare workers that see young adult and adolescent patients.
