In terms of social media, what is most used by youth today?
Each county has a Mental Health Board (MHB) that reports back to the county's board of supervisors. Attend the MHB and ask them to invest in Youth Advocacy.
How do you prevent yourself from becoming burnt out or knowing when to take a break when working in these areas?
As an organization how can we engage and involve youth who aren't as inclined to talk about mental health? As a peer, how to do you communicate and engage with them to include them in the conversation?
At what point do I need to step back from advocacy and support and allow a professional to take over for treatment or to work with organizations and local government?
current youth advocate in Sacramento, HUGE impact in regards to peer support

How does an individual convince an unwilling peer to get help?
HOSA-Future Health Professionals had NAMI as our national service project two years ago, and as a California state officer for HOSA, my question is how can our organization stay connected with members and support members' mental health in a virtual environment during this pandemic?
Thank you. I'll be back tomorrow.

Thank you for such great information. I will be logging in tomorrow to receive more. My name is Brigette Edwards and I work for the City of Sacramento WIOA program for Career Development; sometimes we need to address mental illness, before placing our youth in their work related field of interest. The information receive thus far has been helpful. I will tune in tomorrow. I have another meeting to attend.
Thank you everyone for the advice and resources!
How can we build a feeling of community among students so that they feel comfortable having conversations about mental health?
Thank you :)
I do not have the "Raise Hand" Option. I would just like to say that teachers connnecting with students is really important. School is a "Safe Place" to some students. It may be hard for students to open up in the beginning, but one teacher can make a large impact in a student's life. It is also important for teachers to support mental health clubs. As president of our school NAMI Club, it means a lot when teachers show support by allowing students to share information about mental health in class. I attend a high school in Kern County, and receiving support from teachers is really important, especially when it is on a topic that is not talked about very often, and that has a lot of stigmas.
It's like on a plane. You have to put your air mask first, so you can help those around you.
Thank you all so much <3 :)
It really means a lot!! :) and very true <3
Do we stay on this same zoom meeting for the workshop session?

How does one do yoga with pain management issues?
very cool thank you!
My back and hips
I believe you mentioned your yoga classes, can we find your yoga classes online somewhere, and if so, are they in real time or recorded?
Hi, I have some questions in regards to mental health:Why do some people choose to just take meds and no therapy, is that safe? Can people get over mental illness without medication? Does exercising help control mental illness just by itself?
