Community Speaker Series – Teen Mental Health & Illness, 2/21 & 2/22

District 86 and District 181 Community Speakers Series Presents
Michael Bradley  
TEEN MENTAL HEALTH & ILLNESS
Peel back the cheerful facade that many parents present, and you’ll find that many are worried about their children. New research tells us: our kids are not all right. Too many are struggling with excessive academic loads, extracurricular demands, sleep deprivation, and 24/7 connectivity, causing epidemic rates of anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and suicide. While teen brains are hardwired for risk-taking and overactive emotions, their coping abilities are at all time lows. Dr. Michael Bradley first explains what’s driving today’s adolescent anxiety, depression, and negative behaviors and what the latest brain development research is telling us. Then with proven strategies from his three decades of practice and his own years as a father, Dr. Bradley provides practical advice on how to connect with your children to build their life-saving resiliency and what to do when you’re facing a major mental health issue.
