Lutherwood has launched two initiatives as part of this year's awareness building efforts for Children's Mental Health Week.
Helping Your Teen Cope Seminar
On Thursday May 5, Lutherwood is holding its third of four free children's mental health seminars at St Benedict's Catholic Secondary School Lecture Hall, starting at 7:00. This seminar helps parents understand the teenage stage of life and offers effective parenting strategies to enhance development and manage difficult issues. Go to our Speakers' Series webpage for more information.
Working with partners to break down the stigma of mental health is important. This year, kidsLINK and Lutherwood teamed up to produce two radio advertisements promoting Children's Mental Health Week. Sofia Hostetler and Bekah Dueck provided writing and two of the voices featured in the spots. The ads will air three times a day on CHYM FM, KIX FM, and 570 NEWS during Children's Mental Health Week.
"I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn and grow at the Waterloo Region Psychology Consortium. The range of experience across sites and never-ending support from my supervisors allowed me to meet every one of my training goals and provided me with professional opportunities that left me feeling prepared, confident, and excited about my future as a clinical psychologist."
