CMC: The Continuing Challenges of Child & Adolescent Mental Health

June 6, 2018 12:00 pm @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

CMC presents: Our Healthy Community

On May 16th, CMC’s forum will focus on mental health and how it’s playing an ever-increasing part in society’s woes. Our June 6th forum will continue this important conversation, specifically looking at mental health issues facing adolescents. Why do 1 in 4 children have mental health issues? What roles do social media and the internet play? How do we curb this disturbing trend and what resources are available?

Dr. Teresa Long will moderate this discussing featuring Dennis D. Embry, Ph.D., CEO/president of PAXIS Institute and co-investigator at the National Center on Early Adolescence in Oregon and also the Center on Prevention and Early Intervention at Johns Hopkins University, journalist and author Katherine Reynolds Lewis, and Olympia Della Flora M.Ed., principal of Ohio Avenue Elementary School.
