Conversations with Dr. Tony featuring Dr. Michelle Munson
This webinar is hosted by the Community Technical Assistance Center (CTAC) and later the Managed Care Technical Assistant Center (MCTAC)
Systematic forces and social relationships strongly impact how young individuals make decisions about seeking mental health services. As providers, it is essential to encourage young people and their families to seek mental health care services when it is necessary and to positively facilitate the quality of those services.
In this “Conversations with Dr. Tony”, we will speak with Dr. Michelle Munson about defining, understanding, and supporting the health identity development of transition age youth. We will hear about intervention programs that draw on empirically-based communication strategies to capture young people’s attention and engage them in their care. Dr. Munson will discuss factors that influence utilization and investment in mental health services, the ways in which intervention programs positively impact service use and life outcomes, and how relationships or lack of relationships influence those processes.
