Webinar: Hope for Kids with Depression – June 21 at 6:30 p.m.
Join Jeff Bright, LCSW, BCN, for guidance on helping kids with depression.
Most parents don’t realize that depression looks different in kids than in adults, and the symptoms are not the same. Learn what signs to watch for and what you can do if you think your child is depressed.
Topics to be covered include:
- Recognizing symptoms of depression in kids.
- How to talk to your child about what they’re going through.
- Ways to help kids cope: how to coach your child to decrease feelings of sadness.
- The Beck Depression Inventory (questionnaire).
- Supplements that can be helpful to stabilize mood.
- Seeking professional help: when to talk to a doctor (and seek medication) vs. counseling.
Supporting parents who support children with behavioral and/or mental health problems
Raising a child with behavioral and/or mental health problems is a tough job. There is a stigma in our community that if your child has behavioral or mental health problems, it must come from poor parenting. That simply is not true. The greatest parents can have children who struggle with family/peer relationships or who have unpleasant behaviors (nicely put). Our events are for parents (with children of any age, not just teens) who experience frequent burnout of working with and supporting their children. Join us for peer and professional support.
Our in-person workshops are held at the Neurofeedback and Counseling of Utah office, located at 1407 N 2000 W, Suite J (Downstairs), Clinton, UT (across the street from the Clinton Walmart). We are located in the same building as Health Mart Pharmacy (but downstairs). For webinars, you can log in from your computer or mobile device. Please register for each event, and we’ll send you a link to log in for the live webinar. Space is limited for workshops and webinars and may fill up.
