“Promoting Mental Health for Sexual and Gender Minority Youth: Evidence-Based Developmental Perspectives”

Sponsored by the National Institute of Mental Health, this two-day virtual workshop will convene researchers, youth advocates and federal officials to review the state of the science on developmental trajectories of gender identity and sexuality with a focus on research aimed at the promotion of mental health for sexual and gender minority youth. The workshop will take place Monday and Tuesday, June 10 and 11.

Session themes include epidemiological and population health studies of developmental trends, social determinants of health that drive mental health outcomes at multiple levels (i.e., national, community, interpersonal and individual), and preventive and treatment interventions to ensure healthy futures for all youth. 

The workshop is free and open to the scientific community and the public. Associate Professor Dana Prince of the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences will present on day one (Monday, June 10) during “Social and Structural Determinants of Health: Community, Culture, and Policies” panel, from 1:20 to 3 p.m. EST.
