Supporting your Child’s Emotional & Mental Well-being

Supporting your Child’s Emotional & Mental Well-being

Do you have a child or adolescent in your life? How aware are you of what they are experiencing emotionally and mentally? Do you know how to support them?

The US Surgeon General, Vivek Murthy reported in 2021 that “Even before the pandemic, an alarming number of young people struggled with feelings of helplessness, depression, and thoughts of suicide” and “the COVID-19 pandemic further altered their experiences at home, school, and in the community, and the effect on their mental health has been devastating. The future wellbeing of our country depends on how we support and invest in the next generation.”

Supporting your Child’s Emotional & Mental Well-being is an interactive virtual workshop for parents, guardians, grandparents and caregivers of children and adolescents. The session includes emotional and mental well-being checklists, common mental health conditions and their accompanying signs and symptoms, and ways to nurture and support youth emotionally and mentally. There will also be collaborative breakout sessions to discuss case studies.
