THIS LECTURE IS AVAILABLE ONLINE ONLY.
Join Admiral Rachel L. Levine, MD, 17th Assistant Secretary for Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS); head of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, for this free Grand Rounds lecture.
Since 1980, the Healthy People initiative has set measurable objectives to improve the health and well-being of people nationwide. At the beginning of every decade, we launch a new version of the initiative that addresses the latest public health priorities and challenges. Healthy People 2030 includes data-driven national objectives to improve health and well-being over the next decade. LGBTQI+ adolescents are especially at risk for being bullied, thinking about and dying from suicide, and using illegal drugs. School- and family-based interventions can help reduce these behaviors and improve health in LGBTQI+ adolescents. Focusing on youth mental health now is critical. We all have a role to play in supporting the mental health of children and youth.
At the conclusion of this activity, attendees will be able to:
- Summarize the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services commitment to protecting and expanding access to quality, affordable health care for all, including our nation’s youth.
- Discuss the importance of delivering adolescent health services in a manner that is comprehensive, gender-affirming, youth-friendly, and aligned with the adolescent health objectives included in Healthy People 2030.
- Describe the recommended steps for health care organizations and health professional to improved youth mental health from the Surgeon General’s Advisory Protecting Youth Mental Health.
