Early warning signs of a teen in crisis

More than 40% of teens are not receiving the care and treatment they need–often because they are too embarrassed to talk about mental health or don’t know how to ask for help. Parents don't know how to bring up this difficult subject with their children either. This one-hour presentation empowers parents to talk to their teens about mental health by dispelling mental health myths and providing useful resources and healthy language to use.

Also, be sure to visit these awesome community resources--NAMI, Austin Child Guidance Center, Christi Center (grief support for children, teens, and adults) for upcoming classes and workshops and additional resources for parents.
