Psy.D. students Quincy Guinadi, Milo Due, and Chris Staebell will be speaking to youth on aspects of mental health in a series called Youth Move MN. Sponsored by the Minnesota Department of Human Services, Youth Move National, and the Minnesota Association of Children’s Mental Health, the series will feature a guest speaker each Monday from Oct. 12 through Nov. 23 from 6 to 7 p.m. via Zoom on social justice and mental health topics.

In order to build better systems, we have to understand how they work. Through this guest speaker series, youth ages 12-22 will learn from local experts what mental health is, how social injustices impact it, and how they can take action to build a better world.
