Is your child or teenager struggling with depression? Do you want to learn how to respond to depression in the event of a mental health crisis situation? Come learn, engage in dialogue, and ask questions so you will know what to do if your child needs your help. We will address warning signs, resources, what to expect if your child goes to the hospital, safety, and how to move on from this scary, yet conquerable event as a family.
This is a free event, but space is limited. Please RSVP if you plan to attend. This is an Adult ONLY event.
This class will be taught by local licensed mental health counselor associates, Alan Tokosch and Andrew Carnahan.
