There is a mental health crisis in our country and our youth are being affected disproportionately more than adults. However, with the rapidly changing physical, social and emotional development with subsequent changes in moods, anxiety and behaviors, it is often hard for parents to know when they should be concerned about their child. Furthermore, parents are not sure where to look for help or what kind of help is needed. Learn the typical changes that occur in our youth as they grow older as well as the major warning signs of mental health issues in children and adolescents that all parents should be aware of. Then, explore the vast ecosystem of care that is available to help you get your child back on track. Also, discuss the key elements of being a leader at work and at home to help raise healthy children.
