Parents in Action Fall Seminar: Emotional Well-being Begins at Home

Wednesday, October 25 – 7-8:30pm
Trevor Day High School – 312 E. 95th Street

Research has shown that anxiety among young people has been on the rise. There is also a growing adolescent fascination with suicide, evidenced by the huge popularity of the series 13 Reasons Why and the musical Dear Evan Hansen.

Good parenting strategies can strengthen your children’s emotional and mental health. Learn how to provide developmental opportunities that help children and adolescents cope with anxiety.

Join PIA and JED for an in-depth look at what you can do now to safeguard your children.

  • Is it typical adolescent behavior, or is something else going on?
  • What behaviors may be indicators of trouble?
  • When should parents step in?
  • What life skills should parents teach their children to help them develop resilience?

Our Executive Director, John MacPhee, will lead a discussion and Q&A with a panel of experts:

  • Dr. Anne Marie Albano
    Director, Columbia University Clinic for Anxiety & Related Disorders
  • Dr. Nance Roy
    Chief Clinical Officer, JED
  • Dr. Victor Schwartz

The World Health Organization defines “mental health” “as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.” In using this definition, S2i recognizes that some mental health challenges reflect brain diseases that, like physical diseases, require appropriate stigma-free and patient-centered care and include both mental health and substance use disorders. Other mental health challenges stem from social conditions and marginalization and require different forms of interventions.
