District Hosting “Supporting Our Children’s Mental Wellness” Resource Night and Panel Discussion on March 5The North Syracuse Central School District is hosting a "Supporting Our Children’s Mental Wellness" resource night and panel discussion, on Thursday, March 5 at North Syracuse Junior High School from 6 to 8 p.m. The event is free and open to North Syracuse Central School District families as well as the surrounding community.
The forum is the district’s second annual event designed to help families work through their concerns around students’ mental wellness. The March 5 collaboration is the result of mental health professionals, school administrators, resource officers, counselors and other personnel working together to ensure that families have access to the community supports they need.
North Syracuse Central School District School Social Worker Beth Robbins has been part of the committee organizing the event and encourages community participation. “As busy parents, we often struggle with how to help our child(ren) deal with the thousands of messages they hear every day,” she said. “This resource night is designed for those busy parents to get much of the information they need all in one place. Our panel of experts will provide insight and advice about a range of topics and our community organization participants will have take-away resources to help empower families.”
Parents will hear from a variety of experts on anxiety, depression, bullying, balancing technology/media messages and much more. There will be a resource area available throughout the evening with representatives from Access, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Contact, Inc., Hope for the Bereaved, Liberty Resources, Karate John, McMahon/Ryan, Ophelia’s Place, Q-Center, Vera House, Yoga for Kids of CNY and many more.
