Event description
Mental health is an important part of children’s overall health and well-being. What should parents know about severe mental health issues?

About this event

Over the course of the pandemic, health professionals have witnessed soaring rates of mental health challenges among children, adolescents, and their families.

Mental health disorders in youth are described as serious changes in the way children learn, behave, or handle their emotions, causing problems at school and in the home.

What should families know about mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, psychosis, and more? In adolescents, eating disorders, substance use, and suicide raise additional concerns.

Join Steve Smith, PhD, Clinical Psychologist, Professor and Chair of the Department of Counseling, Clinical, and School Psychology, UC Santa Barbara to understand more about severe mental health conditions in children and youth.

Parents/caregivers, students, educators, mental health professionals, and community members welcome! Free admission. Simultaneous Spanish interpretation will be available.

This special event is sponsored by generous donors from Mills-Peninsula Hospital Foundation and the San Mateo County Office of Education, in partnership with The Parent Venture.
