Why? Are you an adult who wants to learn about ways to talk to your teen about difficult emotions or issues? These WSHS students want to increase awareness and engage in a dialogue with the adults in their lives about mental health from the adolescent perspective. A student panel will address a broad range of topics such as anxiety, stress, depression, emotions, and their relationships with parents and teachers. A mental health counselor from Neighborcare Health at WSHS will be available to guide the discussion about the teenage brain and Adverse Childhood Experiences.
