Disrupting a System – Exploring Teen Mental Health – We’ll explain our approach to systems mapping and how we’re using our map at Hopelab to help young people struggling with emotional well-being. This is a hands-on workshop with Chris McCarthy and Caroline FitzGerald of Hopelab and Becky Richeson of The Omidyar Group.
