NTPA presents: Supporting Youth Mental Health During Uncertainty: What Parents and Educators Should Know & How They Can Help.
New Trier High School and the New Trier Parents’ Association Present Supporting Youth Mental Health During Uncertainty: What Parents and Educators Should Know & How They Can Help. It is no longer news that there is a youth mental health crisis. According to the American Psychological Association (2022), mental health problems are pervasive and profoundly affect children’s education, safety, and futures. Dr. Nancy Burgoyne, Chief Clinical Officer, and Dr. Smita Gautam, board certified child and adolescent psychiatrist at The Family Institute at Northwestern University share current research and provide strategies to work with adolescents. The program will discuss the factors that impact mental health, what strategies parents can employ to support their child when they are struggling, and how to access and amplify adolescents’ capacity for resilience.
