Policy@Manchester presents: In conversation with Dr Ola Demkowicz
This has been a difficult time for teenagers, raising lots of difficult feelings and concerns. There is no "one size fits all" response to support young people post-lockdown, but what can we think about doing to help teenagers to return to education or join the labour market?
Join Policy@Manchester on Wednesday 21 October to hear Dr Ola Demkowicz talk about what has changed for teenagers’ mental health and opportunities since the UK COVID-19 outbreak. Her presentation will be followed by a Q&A.
Register your interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and a Zoom link will be sent in advance of the event.
