Community Conversation: Real Talk with our Kids about Mental Health & Suicide
Overcome the fear and uncertainty that prevents you from speaking to children about mental health and suicide. Hosted by Jenny Thrasher.
Time & Location
Mar 16, 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM CDT
About the event
Talking to kids about mental health and suicide can be uncomfortable, but it doesn't have to be. Honest discussions create the safety our kids need to ask questions and ask for support.
In this free Jenny event, Jenny shares how she raised her daughters to speak openly about mental health and suicide and how having these conversations didn't just help her children but their friends, too.
We'll discuss the following:
- How to explain mental health and suicide in a way that children understand
- How much information is too much information?
- Does talking to kids about suicide give them the idea of suicide?
This event is recommended for parents, teachers, and anyone that works with children.
