Event  description:
Students are stressed…students are filled with anxiety…the Pandemic isn’t helping their mental health…

How has the Pandemic contributed to their anxiety levels? What is filling our kids with stress, what is triggering them to shut down or go into overdrive as they navigate through life? How can parents and caregivers help, and what strategies do our kids need so they can cope and thrive? These are just some of the questions that Maureen Manning and Jennifer Radcliffe will try to provide answers to during this evening parent education session. The presentations by our speakers will last approximately 1 hour and will be followed by 15-30 minutes of Q&A. Please join us for this important event.
