How do I talk to my teen? A conversation about having tough conversations.

Therapists from Anderson High School’s Vida Clinic* will be hosting a dialogue with parents about adolescent mental health and wellness. We invite you to join us for the opportunity to connect with other parents, ask questions, and learn about mental health resources offered at school. We will talk about adolescent development, warning signs, and mental health issues, so feel free to bring your worries and questions to this open discussion about how to have important conversations with your teens.
