What we're about

From fear to anxiety to depression, ADHD or anger, these mental illnesses/conditions are something that affects us all, regardless of age. Our duties as parents are to equip ourselves with the needed knowledge to guide, direct, and protect our kids from these invisible burdens. Freedom from a mental illness is a gift.

This 6 week evening group, hosted by clinical psychologist, Alexa Scher at Psych Central, will start on the 15th of April and continue until the 20th of May. It is a small and intimate group of no more than 10 participant to allow you to learn from, and engage with, her and other parent sharing similar situations.

Who should attend?

Any parent/guardian of a teenager (13 - 18), who struggles with certain mental illnesses/conditions, such as HDHD, anxiety, depression, anger, isolation, conduct disorder or any other considered condition, and who does not know how to effectively cope with, and guide such child, will definitely benefit from this group by understanding the condition itself and learning how to deal with such child.
