On Tuesday, April 3rd the Mercer Island Community and Event Center will hold a Parenting Workshop focusing on Teen Anxiety. In partnership with the Department of Youth and Family Services Community Advisory Board, the “Successful Parenting on Mercer Island: Harmful Stress and Its Impact on Teen Health” workshop will helpfully open eyes to the Island’s youth anxiety and stress-related situation and how to best handle and support our children. Youth and Family Services Director, Cindy Goodwin, will be moderating the event.
Addressing anxiety among the Island’s youth is a top priority for the Healthy Youth Initiative, which comprises of Island volunteers and HYI staff. Their data articulates that 58% if 8th Graders, 60% of 10th Graders, and 70% of 12th Graders “report being bothered by feeling nervous, anxious or on edge.”
In “fireside chat style,” this workshop will feature a panel comprised of youth and adult professionals and will include discussion and advice on how parents might address anxiety and stress with their children.
Department of Youth and Family Services Community Advisory Board invite all Island parents and teens to attend this free event. Drinks and light refreshments will be provided.
