Supporting the Mental Well- Being of our Black Children
June 22 @ 2:30 am - 3:30 pm PDTFree
There is an African proverb that says, Children are the reward of life. It is critical that parents, caregivers, and the village attend to the mental, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of Black children, youth, and emerging adults. They are experiencing loss of routines, adjustments to school/college, missing events such as proms, parties, increased screen time, and less time with friends. Children, teens, and emerging adults are also impacted by adverse childhood experiences, racial stress and trauma, grief and loss, depression/anxiety, suicide, and other mental health challenges. Join us for a dialogue with parents, caregivers, community members, clinicians, and faith leaders about suicide prevention, trauma-informed mental health approaches, supportive parenting strategies, and mental health resources.
Audience of Focus: Parents, Caregivers, Community Members, Faith Leaders, Mental Health Allies, and Professionals
