About this event
Mental health concerns can show up differently in adolescents than adults. This can make it difficult for parents to know when their teen is struggling.
Adolescents might have trouble with:
- Recognizing warning signs of mental health issues
- Voicing their concerns to parents
- Knowing what kind of help they need
These factors create barriers to getting help. The unique challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic make mental health concerns for adolescents especially prominent. In this hour-long webinar Hillary Urban, PsyD and Kate Ernstrom, LCSW, PMH-C will discuss how anxiety and depression show up in adolescents and the role the pandemic plays in adolescent mental health. They will also provide guidance on when and how to seek help/treatment. They will be taking questions throughout and encourage active participation.
Dr. Hillary Urban is a clinical psychologist and Kate Ernstrom is the Director of Clinical Services at Wildflower Center for Emotional Health. They both specialize in adolescent mental health, among other issues. Wildflower’s offices are located in Chicago (River North) and Oak Park. We are committed to helping people live vibrant and joyous lives.
All proceeds from the webinar will be donated to Thrive Counseling Center in Oak Park to support their mental health mission.
