NAMI at Crockett HS

It’s time to talk about mental health! Research shows that 1 in 5 teens experience a mental health issue, with depression and anxiety being the most common diagnosis. Left untreated, these conditions can worsen and impact all aspects of a teen’s life. More than 40% of teens are not receiving the care and treatment they need–often because they are too embarrassed to talk about mental health or don’t know how to ask for help.

This 1 hour presentation equips parents and caregivers with simple tools for proactively addressing this important health issue with the goal of encouraging positive conversations that help teens feel more comfortable seeking help for themselves or their friends.

Tuesday, April 23, 2019
6 – 7 p.m.
Crockett HS, 5601 Manchaca Rd, 78745
Room 19
