Talking to your Teen about Stress: How Parents can Restore Calm

The Fanwood-Scotch Plains-Westfield Here 2 Help Mental Health Coalition will offer its second library forum aimed at providing useful information regarding common stress and anxiety concerns.

The second presentation will be held on Wednesday, February 20th from 6:30 to 7:45 pm at the Scotch Plains Public Library.  Entitled “Talking to your Teen about Stress: How Parents can Restore Calm” Debra Ferro, MFT, from Resolve Community Counseling Center will guide the panel of experts and provide parents and caregivers with strategies to support their children.  Like adults, adolescents may experience anxiety as a normal reaction to stress. But how can you tell if the anxiety your child is experiencing is outside the “norm?” Learn how to spot the signs (which may be subtle), how you can help your adolescent and when you should seek professional help.

Originally organized by the Westfield and Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCAs, the mission of the Here 2 Help Mental Health Coalition is to improve 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.  Coalition members include Caring Contact, High Focus, Imagine, Jewish Family Service, Prevention Links, Resolve Community Counseling Center, representatives of area school districts, municipalities, clergy and other concerned citizens and organizations. Information about Here2Help can be found at www.here2helpnj.org and on their Facebook page, here2helpnj.  Both are filled with timely and important mental health-related resource information.

The library presentations are free.  Pre-registration is preferred at https://www.eventbrite.com/o/here-2-help-mental-health-forums-18328722191.
