Parent Support Study
Parenting with Mental Health In Mind
2nd & 4th Mondays - Starts September 11
6:30 pm in McClure Hall
A kid’s inner world has the power to shape everything—their social lives, academics, and their overall mental state. The likelihood that your kid or teenager—or someone you know—may suffer from a mental health challenge one day is high. In fact, one in five kids suffers from an anxiety disorder. Anxiety is on the rise among kids, and so are depression, self-harm, and so many other mental and emotional health challenges.
But there’s hope: Research shows one of the best predictors of a kid’s success in life is having at least one consistent, supportive, and caring adult in their lives—and that’s you.
Parenting with Mental Health in Mind will help you learn the psychology of what’s going on in your kid’s brain and science-based, practical tools to help your kid navigate a mental health challenge. Upon completion of the course, you’ll feel empowered and equipped to meet your kid’s mental health challenges head-on and support them in the way they need most.
The Parent Roundtable runs from Monday, September 11 to Monday, November 27 on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month. It’s 6 weeks in the fall and 6 weeks in spring semester. There is an optional supporting book parents can purchase for $16.
