Parent Support Series – Kids & Mental Health

November 18 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

View a recording of this session.

Mental health is a term we are all familiar with, and in the context of a global pandemic, mental health fosters resilience. Isolation. New rules of socialization. Virtual learning. Lack of motivation. Dis-engagement. Frustration. With all these big demands on our little children, how do we help them while we are still adapting ourselves?

Join us virtually on Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 6.30pm as we invite Dr. Rachel McCarthy and Dr. Jose Miranda from Vida Clinic to discuss mental challenges seen in children right now, and how we, as caregivers, can help support them as well as ourselves. We’ll be covering topics of remotevs. in-person learning, how families and kids are adjusting, and what mental health supports they may need.

To attend, please RSVP via the Eventbrite link HERE. You MUST register to get the Zoom meeting info, which will be emailed to registrants prior to the event.

We will also give a quick overview on what the BHE PTA has accomplished already this year, how the BHNA is helping us attain our goals, and information on how you can become a member of our PTA, even if you are not a parent at our school!
