      Mental Health Symposium for teens PM session

      The Center for the Advancement of Quality Education and the Kay Dore Counseling Clinic have partnered to offer a Mental Health Symposium Day for Educators and Teens. This opportunity is sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and is FREE to the participants. The symposium offers multiple sessions for adults who work in education and teens to become familiar with a variety of mental health topics that are pertinent to our local community. The afternoon schedule will consist of two sessions, 'More than Sad' and 'Generation Rx'. 'More than Sad' description: This AFSP presentation is geared towards parents/teachers/adults who are in regular contact with adolescents. It teaches them how to recognize the signs of depression and other mental health problems, initiate a conversation about mental health, and get the proper professional help. 'Generation Rx' description: The mission of Generation Rx is to educate people of all ages about the potential dangers of misusing prescription medications. In doing so, we strive to enhance medication safety among our youth, college students, other adults in our communities, and older adults. Prescription medications can help us live longer and healthier lives, but any medication has the potential to do harm – especially when misused. Registration begins at noon. All sessions held in the Burton College of Education in Farrar Hall. Contact Dr. Angel Ogea, Dean of the Burton College of Education, at for more information.
