The Connections Between Parent & Child Mental Health

Tuesday, October 5 | 3PM ET 
A child’s mental health is not just supported by their parents—it can be shaped by them. Mentally healthy children rely heavily on their parents and/or caregivers as the foundation for becoming independent, successful, happy adults.

Caregivers face plenty of challenges when looking after children, and parents and kids may also have shared risks of mental health difficulties, including social, economic, and genetic predispositions.

Join us as Arielle Gartenberg, PsyD, addresses the relationship between kid and caregiver mental health, explains ways to positively parent during stressful times, and answers audience questions about the connections between parent and child mental health.
