Shedding Light on Teen Mental Health
February 26, 2015 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit
An incredibly important conference is taking place this Sunday, March 1st at West Bloomfield High School. Created by numerous caring community partners, Shedding Light on Mental Teen Health is designed to raise awareness and address the stigma surrounding teen mental illness and health.
A wonderful learning opportunity for parents, teachers, mental health professionals, youth professionals and anyone who works with teens, this conference will open up pathways of communication between our struggling teens, those who love them and those who can make a positive change in their lives.
