Millions of Americans are affected by depression, including many children and teens. The consequences of untreated depression can be devastating. However, many parents and family members are unaware of how to recognize the signs and symptoms or what to do when confronted with a child who is struggling. Likewise, children and teens often don't know how to ask for help when dealing with a crisis.
That's why notMYkid is offering a special free community event to educate both adults and teens on the signs, symptoms, causes, consequences, and treatment options associated with depression. Adults will be treated to a presentation created in conjunction with behavioral health professionals and delivered by a member of local law enforcement. Teens will experience a special presentation from one of our young adult Peer Educators, sharing their personal story of overcoming depression, with teachable keys to behavioral health included.
This special event is open to all adults, and children and teens 11 years old and above.
Date: Tuesday, October 7th
Time: 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Location: notMYkid office - 5230 E. Shea Blvd. Scottsdale, AZ 85254
