CVS Exclusive: Mental Health Literacy for Parents: Knowledge and Skills to Support Your Child

November 4, 2021 1:00 pm EDT

Challenges & Solutions

Previously hosted live class exclusively for CVS Colleagues. Access the recording and handouts by clicking on the Course Lesson below.

All children are sad, anxious, irritable, or aggressive at times. Occasionally kids find it challenging to sit still, pay attention, or interact with others. In most cases, these are just typical phases in their development. However, these behaviors may indicate a more serious problem in some children. Without attention, these mental health conditions can prevent children from reaching their full potential. 

Whether your child is doing fine and you want to  prevent future mental health issues, or your child just  doesn’t seem like their usual self, or has actually  declared suicidal thoughts, you can help.  

Participants in this class will be able to:

  • Identify and apply relationship strategies and everyday habits that support good mental health in children and teens. 
  • Recognize the impact of parents’ mental health on the family. 
  • Recognize and respond to signs in children and teens that more mental health support is needed.

● Discover ways to speak about our bodies that encourage body positivity for our children

● Discuss the reasons why we need to model healthy behaviors for our children 

● Develop a plan to include quick healthy practices into your daily life and encourage healthy habits in your children without adding pressure or negative connotations.

  • Complaints of frequent stomach aches or headaches

This class will help you better understand the nature of anxiety, refrain from reinforcing your child’s distress by accommodating behaviors, and apply simple strategies to handle day to day challenges.
