These past two years have been filled with difficulty. Many of us have been feeling helpless in the face of so much grief, violence, and discouragement in the world. It’s hard to feel positive and strong even as adults with all of our mental health tools. And so, what about young people? How are they coping right now and how can we do more to help them?
This week’s authors, Telaina Morse Eriksen (“Unconditional”) and Dr. John Duffy (“Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety”) take a look at how adults, whether parents or not, can support the mental health of young people in our communities.
Everyone who attends is invited to join the conversation. The panel is facilitated by Sherry Richert Belul (“Say it Now.”)
