Girls Matter! A Webinar Series Addressing Adolescent Girls' Behavioral Health
Adolescence is a time of transition with unique challenges and pressures for both girls and boys. This webinar series turns our attention on how these challenges and pressures affect adolescent girls. One in four adolescent girls is experiencing a behavioral health problem, but research shows a gap in services, support, and important behavioral health care for adolescent girls—the very tools that help girls successfully transition into adulthood.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is launching Girls Matter! a webinar series addressing adolescent girls’ behavioral health to bridge this gap by providing professionals with information about the critical needs of girls today. This six-part series features professionals from multiple fields and specialties who share a passion for helping teen girls thrive. Continuing Education Hours NAADAC and NBCC CEHs are available through the ATTC Network Coordinating Office.
