The parent-child relationship is the most powerful mental health intervention known to humankind. Bessel van der Kolk

This month we celebrate World Mental Health on October 10, 2021. As parents, we know we are affecting our child’s mental health every day, But how? This question has become more important as the pandemic persists.
Join us for two important FREE events as we explain and explore what parents need to know about their children’s mental health.

  • 8:00 PM Monday, October 4, 2021  Live Facebook Event  expert panel discussion “Mental Health for All – How Can Parents Help?”
  • 8:00 PM Wednesday, October 6, 2021. “Mental Health Essentials” This class is for parents of toddlers to teens> We will share the keys to supporting your child’s psychological well-being and knowing red flags that suggest they need more help.

Our October class schedule provides answers that will put your mind at ease whether you are dealing with toddler meltdowns or teen romance.  Our classes on “Conversation” and “Less Conflict” go to the heart of mental health with a focus on relationships.  Understanding our children’s unique nature and helping them feel “seen” is a foundation of good mental health. Parents of children with special social-emotional needs will appreciate “ADHD and Autism – Why Do My Kids Act this Way?”

If you are dealing with that confusing stage called adolescence, “Teens in Love” will help. If you are separated or divorced, your child’s mental health is strongly affected by how you and your co-parent can work together. Don’t give up, check out “Cooperative CoParenting.” And finally, and in some ways most important for good mental health, “Wellness on the Run” will inspire and re-energize you about caring for yourself and your family.

Stay with us. We’ve got your back.
