MENTAL HEALTH IS ON OUR MINDS
Improving care and access for youth mental health globally begins with understanding the problem. UNICEF’s On My Mind 2021 Report and separately, Drs. Howard Gardner’s and Wendy Fischman’s The Real World of College, underscored the mental health challenges young people are facing. In this episode of Planet Classroom, Orb introduces us to the work of Harvard’s Wendy Fischman and filmmaker Chelsea Jackson. We learn about the strategies used by young leaders from the Global Youth Mobilization movement to address mental health issues. We share perspectives from youth film critics on the work of acclaimed educator Molly Beauregard shown in the film Tuning the Student Mind. Mental Health should be on all our minds. Get the inside scoop on how change leaders are tackling the challenges.
