Talking to Your Teen About Stress: How Parents Can Restore Calm

​Like adults, adolescents may experience anxiety as a normal reaction to stress. How can you tell if the anxiety your child is experiencing is outside the norm? On Wednesday, February 20 at 6:30 pm at the Scotch Plains Public Library, learn how to spot the signs (which may be subtle), how you can help your adolescent, and when you should seek professional help. Signs of anxiety can include: emotional changes, social changes, physical changes, sleep disturbance, changes in school performance, and/or panic attacks.

This presentation is sponsored by Here 2 Help and will be facilitated by Debra Ferro, MFT, and Lidia Abrams, PhD, of Resolve Community Counseling Center and Breanna Willard of Dhammakaya International Meditation Center.

Here 2 Help is a coalition of community organizations and concerned individuals with a mission of improving community awareness and understanding of mental health issues through education, basic skills training, and resource information and to help break down barriers that prevent people from seeking care.

More information, including registration, will be available at www.here2helpnj.org. The Scotch Plains Library is located at 1927 Bartle Avenue, one block from Park Avenue in the center of town.
