Mental Health on Purpose: Teaching Young People Skills as They Step into Their Future
The statistics regarding young people’s mental health continue to cause alarm. Anxiety is the most common and often the earliest issue to surface, and then becomes a risk factor for increasing problems throughout the teen years. The good news? We know what helps. Taking action to increase connection and actively focusing on certain cognitive and social skills make a big difference in preventing future struggles. Lynn Lyons will showcase an approach consisting of skills that move away from the all-too-common avoidant behaviors (and myths) that interfere with academic, social, and emotional growth.
This event is hosted by Challenge Success and REACH Student Life Management. The event will feature a presentation by licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist, Lynn Lyons, as well as a conversation with Challenge Success Co-Founder, Denise Pope, Ph.D., and high school students.
This event is part of Challenge Success’s commitment to the U.S. Surgeon General’s Call to Action for Youth Mental Health.
