Parents Café: Engage a Life to Save a Life
September 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Topic: Engage a Life to Save a Life
Date: September 16, 2021
Time: Noon – 1:00 p.m.
Description: September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. The focus of this discussion will be youth suicide and understanding how creating protective factors and normalizing the conversation around mental wellness may help to minimize the likelihood that young people feel disconnected from meaningful relationships. Resources will be discussed to be made readily available for youth to easily seek professional help either anonymously or with the assistance of a supportive individual.
Our Nurturing Parents Café is more of a facilitated discussion instead of one of our regular trainings/webinars, Training Credits will not be available.
The Parent Cafes are a monthly, relaxed discussion around Parenting Topics. Participants are encouraged to bring YOUR OWN ISSUES and gain insights and resources!
