In addition to being Children’s Mental Health Awareness month it is also Teen Pregnancy Prevention month so we thought we would share the consistently good work coming out of the Office of Adolescent Health (OAH), US Department of Health and Human Services. There are a number of great resources mentioned that are directly applicable to working with youth with emotional challenges and their families so this is a great fit for the Network. Nice job OAH!
Check out what they have going on for the month of May:
From the OAH announcement…
This May, along with identifying new adolescent health resources from across the federal government, the Office of Adolescent Health recognizes Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month with a series of events and the launch of a new Teen Pregnancy Prevention Resource Center.
