It’s Okay to Say Suicide: Talking with Your Kids about Hard Things (Register to receive the recording)
NYC-Parents in Action recently hosted a substantive and important online seminar, "It's Ok To Say Suicide: Talking With Your Kids About Hard Things," moderated by our own Dr. Laurie Freeman and featuring Dr. Laura Erickson-Schroth and John MacPhee of the JED Foundation.
Our speakers covered a wide range of topics, starting with a couple of sobering facts:
Drug overdose and suicide are the first and second leading causes of death among young people."
"The rates of self-harm and suicide started to change in 2010-11 after the rise in popularity of social media."
Given the importance of supporting our children's mental and emotional well-being, we are offering our community a chance to register for and receive a link to the recorded event. We encourage everyone in the community who may have missed it to watch. Recording is available until November 27th.Find out more »
