Inner County Outreach is hosting a free webinar on Mon, Feb 7th from 12-1pm.
Mentally healthy children are able to reach developmental & emotional milestones, have positive social skills, and healthy ways to cope with problems. One of the most important ways we can strengthen the mental health of children is by recognizing when children need support for their mental health. This introductory webinar explores how culture impacts our understanding of children’s mental health, some of the most common mental health symptoms and diagnoses for children, and when to seek help. This introductory webinar will prepare you for upcoming webinars on children’s mental health.
Fine print: This event is free to attend and everyone is welcome! Certificates of attendance are provided at no cost. CEUs are not provided. Webinar recording & resource info is sent to everyone who registers for the seminar.
