Children, Teens and Mental Health: Where and When to Seek Help
Amid growing concerns for children’s mental health during the pandemic era, more than a quarter of parents say their adolescent-aged child has seen a mental health specialist – with nearly 60% of those reporting a visit within the past year – a new national poll suggests.

Experts from HMHI will discuss youth diagnosis, strategies, and skills for parents that can help create positive change within families.Back to Events
