CYF Caregiver Education November Newsletter

CYF Caregiver Education November Newsletter

The AHS Children, Youth and Families – Addiction and Mental Health Caregiver Education Team is proud to be able to continue to offer free mental health programming for parents and caregivers of children and youth through our partnership with the Mental Health Foundation. In response to the global pandemic, our programming continues to be offered virtually at this time.

 See the CYF Caregiver Education Newsletter – November 2020 for more information on topics, dates, times, and registration.

These 90 minute online sessions are intended to provide parents, caregivers, teachers, and community members with introductory information regarding addiction and mental health challenges that can affect children/youth. Unless specified, sessions are for an adult audience.

This month, we will be offering webinars on sleep and your family’s mental health, ADHD, and the first of a four part series on anxiety.  These 60 minute informational webinars are for parents/caregivers who are looking to strengthen their child’s/adolescent’s ability to thrive through life’s challenges and discover strategies that can help build resiliency and overall family wellness.

Parent Groups are back—virtually! In November, we will be starting ‘Resiliency in the Face of Stress and Anxiety’; a series of six 120 minute online interactive group workshops where parents will receive practical information, share parenting tips, practice skills, and participate in group collaboration, reflection, and support. For parents of children in grades 5-8.

The Support, Education, and Engagement Drop-In Sessions (S.E.E.D.S) are 90 minute, drop-in, interactive and educational workshops. They are designed to help parents/caregivers learn foundational strategies that cultivate healthy relationships, strong child development, and resilient families.
