Helping Kids Find Their Way:Toward Mental Health and Emotional Well-being
2019-20 Luncheon Lecture Series
Anxiety, depression and other mental health issues can be crippling for people of any age. But for school-aged kids the impact of mental health issues may be particularly profound. Mental health affects how you see the world, handle challenges, relate to others and make choices. It is hard to show up and learn anything at school if you are too depressed or traumatized to focus.
We need to find ways to help kids who are struggling to overcome the enormous challenges that life throws at them. With this Series we will learn some of the ways to help kids find their way.
