Event Details

 

Please join us for this free event on December 8. CHC will host Sheri Sobrato and a panel of caring experts talking about young people who struggle with challenges. Sheri's new book, Digging Deep, was created with love and compassion out of her own journey with health problems. The CHC staff has found Sheri's book to be equally compelling for children with learning challenges and behavioral health issues.

Digging Deep is a journal designed to gently guide children through the process of self-exploration through powerful words and vibrant images. Young people are empowered when they realize that that have found the answers within. 

 "Digging Deep is a remarkable resource for children and adolescents living with serious illness. By digging deep, young people will, in fact, emerge into clarity and light."

 -Barbara M. Sourkes, PhD, Professor of Pediatrics, Stanford University School of Medicine Kriewall-Haehl Director, Palliative Care Program, Lucile Packard Children's Hospital

Sheri will share her personal journey with her own health issues and how she learned to dig deep and unleash her innate power to heal herself. The panel will include Sheri, myself and other experts from CHC. Light refreshments will be served.

 

This event is recommended for adults.

 

We hope you will join us.

 

My best,

Organizer

CHC Rocktoberfest!

CHC Rocktoberfest is a light-hearted spin on the typical annual fundraising gala. Guests visit and dance the night away knowing their participation is all for a great cause. Proceeds from the event support CHC, the well-known local nonprofit that has changed the lives of close to a million families facing ADHD, learning differences, anxiety and depression and autism. Rocktoberfest is always a sell out and a perfect way to spend a beautiful October evening while giving back to the community.  

 

CHC provides expert multidisciplinary services for children and teens with ADHD, Learning Differences, Anxiety & Depression and Autism in the Greater Bay Area at The Center in Palo Alto, Community Clinics in Palo Alto and San Jose, in partnership in the Ravenswood community, and administers two schools: an award winning K-8 program for children with learning differences and an alternative public school for children with emotional and behavioral issues. CHC strives to remove barriers to learning for kids and families regardless of language, location or ability to pay. Thanks to community support, CHC has expanded its services to low-income families in the peninsula and south bay, expanded its on and off-site community and professional education program to over 2,700 participants, and recently launched the Teen Mental Health Initiative to reduce stigma, increase awareness, connect those in need to those who can help, and reduce teen suicides. CHC is a 501(c)3 charity, TIN 94-1312311. www.chconline.org
