It’s not always obvious when your child—or one you care about—is struggling emotionally. Recognizing the symptoms and seeking early and effective mental health services are critical for educational achievement, as well as long-term health and happiness.
Join the National PTA and American Psychological Association (APA) on Sunday, May 4 at 7 p.m. EDT for an important conversation: How to Tell When a Kid is Struggling Emotionally.
Renowned psychologist Dr. Mary Alvord will speak frankly with parents, educators and youth-serving professionals about how to recognize when a youth is struggling, and what to do about it when you know a child or teen needs help. Dr. Alvord will be available to answer questions at the end of her presentation along with psychologists Laurie McCubbin, Ph.D. and Michael Southam-Gerow, Ph.D. from the APA committee on Children, Youth and Families.
