Description

In collaboration with the University of Connecticut and the Inspiration Foundation, Newport Academy Presents:

Rethinking Teen Mental Health: A Path to Sustainable Healing

Are we overmedicating our kids?

More than 10 percent of children are taking medication for ADHD. Meanwhile, another 5 million American youth, ages 17 and under, are using antidepressants and anti-anxiety drugs.

This day conference delves into these important topics affecting our young people. Join experts from Newport Academy and Alan Schwarz, author of ADHD Nation, for a transformational event exploring creative, evidencebased clinical solutions for teens and their families who are struggling with mental health issues.

Experience dynamic, interactive workshops on how to help teens create authentic connections with self, peers, and family—using music therapy, art therapy, Family Systems Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, SelfMedication Theory, “food as medicine,” and mindfulness practices.
