Ending the Silence: Mental Illness and Recovery Resources for Parents and Adolescents
Guest Speakers: Ms. Laurie Pepe and Mr. Nick Emeigh, National Alliance on Mental Illness, Bucks County (https://namibuckspa.org/)
One half of all lifetime cases of mental illness begin by age 14. BADGE invites all parents, educators, and adolescents to learn about the warning signs of mental health conditions and what to do if you or a loved one show symptoms. Topics will include substance abuse and suicide and may be too intense for young children; parent discretion advised.
