Adolescence represents an important time in children’s lives for developing emotional health and well-being. Positive social relationships and self-concept are critical to the emotional and physical safety of children. This panel discussion invites attendees to join a public discussion on the current social and emotional state of affairs among adolescents and what families, schools and communities can be doing — and are doing — to support adolescent well-being and safety.
