Given the disproportion number of people of color in the prison system, it is important to understand mass incarceration and how it impacts system-involved youth. In this training we will talk about the historical context of mass incarceration, why mass incarceration exists, how it impacts youth, and strategies to support youth who have an incarcerated parent. This understanding is crucial for social service and behavioral health providers, caregivers and other natural support people to compassionately support youth impacted by incarceration.
