Understanding and Addressing Adolescent Mental Health and Depression - March 21, 2019

Understanding and Addressing Adolescent Mental Health and Depression

03/21/2019 - 7:00pm
New Trier High School - Northfield Campus

At this event hosted by New Trier High School, you will have the opportunity to hear from several members of New Trier staff, representatives from some of the mental health organizations in our community (Willow House, Haven Youth and Family Services, and Erika’s Lighthouse), and Dr. Jonathan Singer, an expert on adolescent depression from Loyola University.  After a short presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask questions of these experts. The goal of the event is to develop a deeper understanding of the varied signs of depression, learn strategies all adults can use to help connect with students who may be struggling, and expand our knowledge of the resources available to support students in our community.
You can find more information regarding the services offered through Willow House here, Haven Youth and Family Services here, and a parent handbook from Erika’s Lighthouse here.
