Teen mental health is focus for November Living Well Wednesday

Submitted by Ashley Svaty

The next Living Well Wednesday program will take place at 12:10 p.m. Nov. 1 via Zoom. The webinar, "Teen Stress and Anxiety: How Worried Do Parents Need to Be?" will focus on the critically important topic of teen mental health.  

This webinar will be presented by Christine D. Perez, licensed clinical professional counselor and director of crisis services at Crawford County Mental Health Center, and Erin Tynon, family consumer science agent for Pottawatomie County.

The program will examine the current state of teen mental health and decipher for parents what is normal teen stress versus when professional help may be needed. Parents want to say the right thing when their child talks about their stresses, but sometimes it is hard to find the words. This will give parents scripts and strategies to talk about these tricky topics. Perez will be available to answer any of those hard questions parents may have.

Register for the webinar.
