The City of Elmhurst Commission on Youth is hosting a series of “Youth Issues During Covid”.
Our next virtual live event is: “Depression in Kids During Covid”. Sponsored by Amita Health and Dr. Jason Washburn.
Thursday, January 14th, 7:00-8:30pm
When is the change of mood we are seeing in kids considered temporarily stress? When is it something you need to take action on where it could be the onset of a mental health disorder? We will cover emotional/behavioral difficulties related to covid and remote/hybrid learning. Many kids are struggling. Anger outbursts, strong mood fluctuations, and isolating are some areas parents are having concern.
The free event will take place live on the Elmhurst TV YouTube channel. For the Q&A portion at the end, please email any questions to Jackie.Haddad-Tamer@elmhurst.org
A link to the live event will be posted as the date gets closer.
