Presenter: Michelle R. Munson, PhD - Professor and Associate Dean of Faculty Affairs at NYU's Silver School of Social Work
Date & Time: Wednesday, May 22, 2019, 1pm to 2pm EDT (10am – 11am PDT)
Michelle R. Munson, PhD is an internationally recognized expert in services and interventions for young people transitioning to adulthood with serious mental health conditions, which generally occurs between 16 and 30 years of age. In this webinar, Dr. Munson will discuss four important aspects of intervention development, as related to creating the “Just Do You” intervention. “Just Do You” is a brief meta-intervention for young adults experiencing one of their first-contacts with the mental health system. It was designed to help orient young people to their clinics, their programs, their providers, and typical mental health service components, while also encouraging them that they can be partners in their mental health care decisions. The randomized control trial (RCT) testing the efficacy of the “Just Do You” intervention that Dr. Munson and her colleagues are working on will be presented in this webinar as well.
