Strong Minds Happy Hearts- A Conversation on Children's Mental and Emotional Wellness
One in five children experience a mental, emotional or behavioral problem. They're not just "trying to get attention." It could seriously affect their ability to learn and to be successful. Join One in Five Minds as we partner with local school districts to discuss the warning signs of mental illness, how to find help, how to work with your school, what to do about substance abuse, and more. There is hope. We have two upcoming Strong Mind and Happy Hearts events
