What research says about mental health in communities by Rich Bodo
Presented by Rich Bodo
A talk that gives a very brief history of mental health outcomes and practice in US high schools, and tell the story of some of the things that researchers found work, and which practitioners implemented, that turned some of those communities around. Take questions.
Rich grew up around homebrew computers, became an IT guy for non-profits, built some decentralized systems for them, and then got involved with Networks of Support,who teach preventative mental health care programming that has been research-driven for over a decade. Rich's job with them is to produce free materials - videos, research summaries, and an online manual that anyone can use to learn how preventative mental health care programming can be implemented, and what the research says about implementation.
