Understanding and Addressing Adolescent Mental Health and Depression
At this event,
you will have the opportunity to hear from several members of our staff,
representatives from some of the mental health organizations in our community
(Willow House, Haven Youth and Family Services, and Erika’s Lighthouse), and
Dr. Jonathan Singer, an expert on adolescent depression from Loyola University.
After a short presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask questions
of these experts. Our goal is to develop a deeper understanding of the varied
signs of depression, learn strategies all adults can use to help connect with
students who may be struggling, and expand our knowledge of the resources
available to support students in our community.
Parents and students are welcome. We hope that
you will attend!
