Teen Mental Health in the Time of COVID

Marin Healthcare District invites you to the community health webinar series, Teen Mental Health in the Time of COVID

As if adolescence wasn’t stressful enough, the challenges teens have faced over the past year and continue to confront during the COVID crisis are unprecedented and can be extremely overwhelming. Families, friends and the community are often at a loss how to understand and offer support for mental health problems that are becoming increasingly common. If you care for a teen, or are concerned about your own wellbeing, please join this event. In this presentation, our speakers will discuss:

• Day-to-day management and preventative care during the pandemic

• Depression, crisis events, and suicidal ideation

• Post-crisis care and DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy)

• Anxiety and substance abuse

• Communication strategies in the home and community

• Confronting the stigma of mental illness

• Support resources We’ll also have time for Q&A at the end of the presentation.
