On May 8th, several U of MN departments hosted a virtual event in partnership with The Ladder program to help youth learn about mental health and provide them with some stress coping skills. Vanessa Anyanso, counseling graduate student in the Department of Psychology, was one of the lead presenters. She shared information on emotional regulation and mindfulness.

The Ladder is a club for children and young adults in North Minneapolis who are interested in health careers. The program provides a structured environment of service learning, leadership development, and cascading mentorship. Members range from fourth-grade students to practicing physicians and researchers.

Participating U of MN departments are the Department of Psychology, the Institute of Child Development (ICD), the Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain (MIDB), the Department of Neuroscience, and the Medical School.
