Parent University | January 2021

Topic: Teen depression and suicide

This month's virtual Parent University focuses on teen mental health with a presentation called More Than Sad from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.  

More Than Sad has taught over a million students, families and educators how to be smarter about mental health. This interactive presentation teaches students, parents and guardians how to recognize signs of depression and other mental health problems, initiate a conversation about mental health and get help. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions, as well. 

The presentation also includes the film "Teen Depression," which is designed to demystify treatment and encourage students who are struggling to seek help (view a trailer of the film). 

The program is free but registration is required. Please see below for more information on how to register for one of the sessions. Both sessions will feature the same information.
