Life as a QuaranTEEN: Youth Mental Health Post-Pandemic
On top of the usual struggles of adolescence, young people have spent the last year adjusting to remote learning, disruptions to social lives, minor disappointments, and major losses. While we look towards the light of a post pandemic world, a whole new set of mental health concerns are emerging. How do we even think about approaching these challenges?

New York Times columnist and American Psychological Association thought leader Lisa Damour, Ph.D. brings inspiring, practical advice about obstacles and opportunities for our mental health post-pandemic and skills we can use to foster a resilient rebound. In a youth-centered, youth-moderated conversation, Dr. Damour will outline strategies young people, and those who care for them, can use to support their mental health.

Dr. Damour is the author of two New York Times bestselling books, Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions into Adulthood and Under Pressure: Confronting the Epidemic of Stress and Anxiety in Girls.

Dr. Damour will be in conversation with Saul Arnow and Margo Cicero, members of the city of Chicago's Mayor's Youth Commission and chair and vice-chair, respectively, of its Mental Health Working Group. Mr. Arnow is a junior at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools, and Ms. Cicero is a junior at Whitney Young Magnet High School, both in Chicago.

This event will be recorded and available later on the FAN website and our YouTube channel.
