There are countless stories from emergency department staff that speak to us about the difficulties they have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic. With their physical and mental wellbeing thinly stretched and feeling worn down, ED staff are now facing a new trend – an increase in youth experiencing a behavioral health crisis, including suicide.

Knowing what resources are available and where to direct families can be difficult in the moment. This webinar is designed to provide hospital staff with various resources that can support patients, as well as family members, and ease the already stressful environment in the ED.

CHA and California Children’s Hospital Association are happy to present a panel of experts who will provide a wealth of information to help support youth and their families experiencing behavioral health conditions.

The panel includes representatives from:

  • Department of Education
  • California Alliance of Child and Family Services
  • National Alliance of Mental Illness, California
  • Stanford Center for Youth Mental Health and Wellbeing
  • Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services
