PTA offers free parent education program
2-part series to focus on childhood/teen mental health issues
Submitted By Lori Naylor
In addition to the normal ups and downs of childhood and teen life, more serious problems can occur. Depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, addiction and bi-polar are mental health issues that also can affect our children, and today's parents want more information to help them recognize and work effectively with these serious situations. Whether your family is currently dealing with one of these problems or you just want to be more informed, come to this important two-part series on mental health and our kids.
Over the course of two evenings, February 16 and 23, we'll be looking at the signs of mental health problems, finding resources available for help, creating more mentally healthy environments, and learning strategies parents can use to help children and teens develop the emotional resilience they need to respond appropriately to the challenges and frustrations of growing up.
Program instructor is Elaine Culverwell, a marriage and family therapist, who has over 20 years of experience working with the kids and parents of Fremont. She is a former teacher in the Fremont Unified School District and now teaches parenting classes for Fremont's Youth and Family Services. She works with individuals, couples and families in her private therapy practice.
