Workshop: Helping Teens and Families Struggling with Mental Health Issues
Led by Ed Sutter, NCC, MSEd
There are a number of places where the work of youth ministry intersects with mental health. But it can be easy to overlook mental health problems unless you are able to recognize the signs and know how to address them.
This workshop will teach you to:
Recognize the signs of emotional/mental health problems in youth
Empower yourself with knowledge about these problems
Address the issue or situation the youth and/or family is struggling with
Lead youth and families to appropriate resources for help
Who Should Attend: Youth pastors/directors/lay leaders, or anyone working with youth, especially in a ministry setting.
