Event description

Description

Dr. Eva C. Ihle, MD, PhD, is a neuroscientist and board-certified psychiatrist who treats children, adolescents and adults, and is a Health Sciences Associate Clinical Professor at the University of California, San Francisco.

Do you sometimes worry about your child’s withdrawal, gloominess or negativity? Do you wonder if this is just a normal aspect of teen years, or if it might be something more? You know that teens experience emotional upheaval, but you want to be sure.

This essential talk with Dr. Eva Ihle will teach parents how to differentiate between the typical rollercoaster of teen emotions, and the onset of depression. Learn about the early signs and symptoms of depression, and how to read them in your child. Dr. Ihle will talk about the statistical occurrence of depression among teens, its link to environmental influences, changes in brain chemistry, and genetics. She will also demystify and destigmatize depression, and describe the broad range of treatments that work - both with and without medication. Finally, Dr. Ihle will teach parents how to address the issue with their teens, and how to provide support if their children’s friends or peers are experiencing depression.
