Beyond the Basics of Teens & Anxiety: What Helps, What Doesn’t, and How to Know the Difference
February 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The emotional health of our young people was suffering prior to 2020. As we now emerge from a time like no other, teens need strategies to reduce and prevent the negative impacts of anxiety, stress, and depression, both at school and home. Going beyond the basic information most people have already heard, this program will show parents and teachers how to help teens tolerate uncertainty, understand the links between anxiety and depression, and pay particular attention to the role of social media in our social and emotional lives.
This free, educational webinar is presented by Gateways’ Mental Health Initiative in partnership with Parenting with Purpose and the Ruderman Synagogue Inclusion Project.
