In communities across Maine, there is a growing concern about anxiety and depression among adolescents and young adults. The facts are troubling. The Hanley Center recognizes that many great organizations and individuals are working hard to address this issue in every corner of the state. In support of their work and with the hope of generating new and innovative initiatives, we commit our 2016 Forum to this important issue.
As with all Hanley initiatives, the spirit of collaboration in creating positive change will be key to the success of the day! We hope you will join us as we bring together primary care & other providers, health leaders, educators, parents, consumers, law enforcement, behavioral health professionals, and community & business leaders for a day of learning, networking and innovating.
At the end of the day, we hope to have 3-5 concepts that either attempt something new or expand upon a current community collaboration to better support Maine’s high school and college age young adults challenged by anxiety and/or depression.
