Supporting Your Teen’s Behavioral Health:

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) defines Behavioral Health as the promotion of mental health, resilience, and wellbeing. As parents, there are few things we would wish for our teens, as important as this. In this training our Parent Educator partners with a Teen Health Connection psychologist to explore the many aspects of life that affect a teen’s wellbeing. We will discuss the role parenting styles play in influencing a teen’s behavioral health, explore strategies to promote your teen’s wellbeing, review warning signs your teen might be dealing with mental health issues, and when and where to ask for help.

Teens and Technology; Finding the Balance:

In this class, parents will review the most recent information from leading experts regarding teens and their relationship with technology. Being mindful of the statistics from childmind.org that only 10% of kids and teens engage in problematic internet use ((PIU) – online use excessive enough to interfere with their daily lives), we’ll explore the potential dangers technology presents to a teen’s emotional and physical well-being and focus on establishing a healthy relationship with technology. Finally, we’ll discuss how finding a healthy balance with technology can lead to a more balanced life overall.

Substance Use Prevention: What Parents Need to Know

Alcohol remains the drug of choice for most teens and too many young people are experiencing consequences from drinking at a young age. This class looks at why some teens experiment with alcohol, what parents need to know to keep their teens safe, and examines the impact that marketing and the media have on underage drinking. Research shows that teens are much more likely to delay drinking when they have a trusting and supportive relationship with a parent or guardian. This class will give parents tips for developing these healthy relationships.
