Join us as we welcome Tiffany Creager, LSW, MSW, for this exciting opportunity. According to research, signs of mental health diagnoses can often be detected in the child and adolescent years ahead of the diagnosis. Unfortunately, 50% of students in need of mental health support will not receive it. Additionally, 8-10 years is passing between the onset of mental health symptoms and receiving treatment. Mental health disorders can present in a variety of ways. This workshop will provide a brief overview of common characteristics for the most prevalent mental health disorders in youth and will focus on strategies for mental wellness. Participants will leave with simple, evidence-based strategies for building positive relationships, empowering youth to recognize and regulate emotions, and encouraging healthy habits for emotional wellbeing. These strategies can be used with children of all ages!
