Did you know that the time frame for a person to get help for mental illness is from 10- 14 years? Mental Health issues can lead students to referral discipline, suspension, or even dropping out of school and the consequences of the school-related discipline lead to underemployment, unemployment, prison and very marginal quality of life.
Come and learn how you can make the difference by having a healthy attitude about mental issues. In our society, the stigma around the topic of mental illness among teens, parents, and the community creates a barrier that can prevent individuals from getting the help they need. The best way to stomp out stigma is by talking openly about it and having the right attitude.
This conference will empower parents to speak about mental issues and to provide that very needed dialogue with their children so that they can perform better in and out of school.
