Wednesday, March 27th 4:30-5:30pm
This is the fourth in a series of four connected workshops that will talk about mental health (attend one or all four!). This week, we will be focusing on understanding brain science to help put risky behaviors in perspective.
This lesson helps teens focus on how teens make decisions and why. Using interactive brain models and a risk continuum, youth develop an understanding of how risky decisions might play out in their personal life.
The following skills we will work to develop are the following: understand teen brain development, determine realistic ways to avoid risk, increase help seeking behaviors, identify resources for when things don’t go as planned.
About the facilitators: Parker is cis and female (she/her pronouns), an ally to the LGBTQ+ community, and a proponent for de-stigmatizing mental illness and suicide. She is also an advocate for mental health and wellness and has experience as an Outreach Specialist for Lines for Life as well as addressing prevention of substance abuse and suicide.
