Become Empowered to Talk about the Tough Stuff

About this Event

We're empowering parents to talk about the hard stuff. Join us to learn about the signs, stages, and resources for common mental health & behavioral health issues, and how they relate to the entire family unit.

Location: Within the University of Incarnate Word, you'll make your way to their Student Engagement Center. A parking garage plus a ground parking lot is conveniently available.

Our series is geared towards parents and caregivers of youth and teens.

The event will begin with a Keynote Conversation with Jeff Arndt, CEO of VIA Metropolitan Transit, and Erika Prosper, First Lady of San Antonio. They will be sharing the impact of mental health as it affects family units. The second half of the afternoon will give parents/caregivers the opportunity to meet in smaller groups with the seven agencies participating, and discuss specific topics that relate back to "The 'WE' in Family Wellness."
