With most students around the nation experiencing distance learning for the new school year because of COVID-19, addressing and improving youth mental health is more important than ever.
Blue Shield of California worked with the Commonwealth Club of San Francisco and Michelle Meow to produce a virtual panel discussion featuring youth mental health experts that are engaged with our BlueSky program. The talk happened on Aug. 27.
Some of the topics that were discussed included the need for more mental health specialists in school settings, how schools and our nonprofit partners pivoted after the COVID-19 outbreak, and lessons learned as we head into a new school year.
