Lynn Lyons is back by popular demand, joining Gateways’ mental health speaker series to facilitate a free presentation for parents and educators. Current news about children and mental health has created warranted concern, but the information can be overwhelming and hard to sort through. Lynn Lyons will draw upon current research and over 30 years of clinical experience as she presents about the common traps adults fall into and the key adjustments they should make to prevent and help with mental health challenges in our kids.
