Mental Health Month Conversation: Teen resilience and coping strategies

Green ribbon for Mental Health MonthWhat’s normal teen behavior? When should you seek support?

Thursday, May 25, 2017
6 to 8 p.m.

Merrifield Center
8221 Willow Oaks Corporate Drive, Fairfax 22031

Being a teen is tough. School, sports, social lives and social media – all can bring emotional challenges. Caring adults can help.

With the right tools, adults can help teens foster positive relationships, develop resiliency in response to adversity, and increase their ability to cope.

Join the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board (CSB) and community partners for an honest conversation on strengthening connections within families and helping teens cope with adversity and emotional challenges. Panelists will include CSB clinical and wellness/prevention staff and experts from Fairfax County Public Schools, the Inova Kellar Center and PRS CrisisLink.
