Wellness Series: Mental Health Workshop for Teens & Parents

Sunday, June 04, 2023, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Location: Water's Edge in Ocean Beach, 1984 Sunset Cliffs Blvd, San Diego, CA US 92107

Room: OB Sanctuary and Community Room

Group: Waters Edge

The headlines scream "ANXIETY EPIDEMIC" and teens are feeling the pressure: in school, with peers, online, and at home. How can we cope with all this stress?

Please share this workshop with any parents of teens that you know.

Join us for this FREE community workshop to discuss healthy strategies for managing anxiety, depression, and the daily grind in this confusing post-pandemic world. Teens and their parents will have separate workshops to zero in on the issues that matter most to each.

Parents will learn protective factors to maintain a healthy mental outlook, how to be a stable, grounding force in your family unit, and what are the warning signs that extra help is needed.

Young people will discuss the unique pressures facing their generation, from the drama of friendships, academics, and full schedules to big question marks around economic uncertainty, political upheaval, and the future of our planet.

Both workshops will be held concurrently with a mental health professional who specializes in youth wellness. Bring your questions and concerns; you will leave prepared to have fruitful conversations in your family about promoting everyone's mental well-being.

Please RSVP by Saturday, June 3.
Light refreshments will be provided. This event is produced in collaboration with WE Youth and the New Life Counseling Center.
