The Urban Beats team will provide a free training to local mental health services providers and their clients about how to improve their work with transition aged youth. The training will teach non-traditional points of connection, trauma informed care, and how to break down barriers to service. The goal is that attendees will leave with a better understanding of how to reach and serve transition aged youth. Our training will teach providers how they can use the creative arts as a tool to engage with their participants on a deeper level to talk about mental health and wellness.
