“What Youth Want Parents to Know About their Mental Health”

A Group Discussion with Youth MOVE

The upcoming webinar will be focused on how parents can assist and support their youth in regards to balancing school with other aspects of their lives. We will touch on public schooling, bullying, home school socialization, and balancing extracurricular activities, like sports and clubs. Our group thinks this is an important topic because parental support is instrumental in youth education, and our hope is that they will be better able to understand their youths’ struggles in life, as well as be better able to help them navigate it. There will be four panelists and various other people performing tasks such as directing and running two trainings for those working on this project.
