Youth4Wellness at Yale

Program Description

We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Fernandes will launch a National Youth Advisory Board (YAB) to promote mental health and well-being among youth and to normalize seeking and accessing mental health resources. The YAB will run parallel alongside Dr. Fernandes’s research project entitled “A videogame targeting suicide prevention in adolescents with lifetime prescription opioid misuse” where the YAB will review and provide input on various stages of the scientific process.
