Mental Health Mini Summit

Parenting teenagers is hard work!

 The Adolescent Mental Health Summit brings top experts to one place for supporting parents with the nuances of their teen’s mental health.

The topics covered in this mini summit are hard to talk about. Parents with teens that are going through mental health challenges often feel very alone and ashamed. My goal is to shine a light on these topics in a way that allows parents to feel more capable and informed – and to allow all parents to recognize there is no shame here, simply children that are doing the best they can with the tools they have.

The Adolescent Mental Health Mini Summit provides valuable information for parents around learning challenges, eating disorders, self harm, anxiety, depression, and more.
