NRCI has partnered with Mayor Tisdahl ’s Summer Youth Employment Program to conduct a pilot study with up to 100 African American high school students participating in mental health education programming during July 2015. Program developers from NRCI will train 12 young adults to lead mental health education programming to youth in the topics of Conflict Resolution, Communication, Healthy Peer Relationships, and Stress Management.
The pilot study will be evaluated and results will determine a recommendation for expanding this partnership for mental health education programming during the 2015-2016 school year and for summer 2016 through Mayor Tisdahl’s office.
Stay tuned for more on this initiative!
