We will meet to………
- Increase mental health knowledge on specific youth related issues
- Understand typical adolescent development versus a mental health concern
- Educate you, the parents, to help recognize warning signs and approach your child in a supporting manner
- Provide local and helpful resources for you to utilize if you or your youth are in need of services
