In addition to the normal ups and downs of childhood and teen life, more serious problems can occur. Depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, addiction and bi-polar are mental health issues that also can affect our children, and today’s parents want more information to help them recognize and work effectively with these serious situations. Whether your family is currently dealing with one of these problems or you just want to be more informed, come to these meetings on mental health and our kids.
It will cover signs of mental health problems, resources available for help, and learning strategies parents can use to help children and teens develop the emotional resilience they need to respond appropriately to the challenges and frustrations of growing up.
