About the Workshop:

This presentation will cover how common depression and suicide are among kids, how kids become exposed to this content through the media and their friends, and how parents can recognize early warning signs. Parents will also be provided with evidence-based tips for discussing these topics with their kids and when it is appropriate to do so. Finally, parents will be provided with resources about discussing depression and suicide and what to do if they are concerned for their child. Time for role plays and questions will be available.
