The workshop:

  • Served as a forum for improving journalists’ knowledge of critical issues such as mental, physical health and environmental health impacts  of  youth violence; innovations in prevention and intervention; social, economic and legal implications, and responses by schools, public health institutions, and community and faith-based organizations
  • Explored new research, reporting ideas and best practices with leading mental health, policy and prevention experts and award-winning journalists
  • Confronted challenges — and identified opportunities — that exist for journalists pursuing these stories with limited resources
  • Provided practical tools to enable journalists to successfully produce stories that examine the problem of youth violence and serve to educate and encourage prevention.
