On Mar 3, 2021, a Youth Town Hall entitled “Promoting Youth Mental Health and Well-Being Through Resiliency and Community Connection’’ engaged youth leaders from the City of Irvine’s High School Youth Action Team (HSYAT), along with parents and other community leaders, to discuss the mental health impacts the COVID-19 pandemic has had on high school students.
