“Take Action Against Bullying” Presented by Nancy Gray, Regional Parent Support Coordinator Bullying has become such a widespread problem it is now being recognized as a major mental health concern for children and youth, having been found to leave long-term emotional scars and psychological effects similar to anxiety disorders and post-traumatic stress. This workshop will help you identify the warning signs of both the victim and the bully. Prevention and effective coping skills will be explored.
Facilitated by parents for parents. Are you worried about your child’s emotional well-being? Through parent-to- parent sharing of experiences and knowledge, G.E.A.R. empowers parents of children with behavioral health needs to build on their family’s strengths and to advocate for their family’s needs. Free services available to parents and caregivers include information and support by phone; monthly support groups; education, health, and legal training; and social opportunities.
