& Emotional Well-being

This presentation draws from recent research surrounding Sharpen’s online platform and holistic framework to assist wellness practitioners in understanding the positive impact of using an ecological approach and a structured peer-engagement formula to improve mental and emotional well-being. This approach has resulted in improved access to and utilization of quality mental health care, better treatment outcomes among a variety of populations, and increased resilience. Discover how early interventions and equipping children, parents, and educators with evidence-based tools and connecting them to community resources can improve mental and emotional wellness.

Robyn Hussa Farrell, MFA, E-RYT, President & CEO, Sharpen
Robyn Hussa Farrell, MFA, E-RYT, co-founder and CEO of Sharpen, has spent the past 20 years collaborating with state agencies, educational systems, public health, and psychology researchers to build and deliver evidence-based mental health prevention programs for K-20 institutions and communities. Robyn’s experience working in collaboration with researchers developing peer resiliency programs led her to see a need to scale her community-based programs through technology. She and her husband, Tim, have developed a robust library of over 5,000 documentary films covering hundreds of mental health topics, featuring the nation’s top researchers and highlighting patient stories of resilience and strength. These films are the basis for the content within the Sharpen technology platform, which has been deployed in transdisciplinary research collaborations involving child and adolescent mental health since 2014.
