Monday, April 30, 2018 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Location: PACER Center
Presented by Dr. Barry Garfinkel, and Renelle Nelson
If negative thoughts and feelings persist and start to limit a child's ability to function normally, it could be depression. In school, depression can impact successful academic, social, and emotional growth. Dr. Barry Garfinkel, a child and adolescent psychiatrist, will discuss the different types of depression, the risk factors associated with depression, and how to effectively use counseling and medication for support. Renelle Nelson, coordinator of PACER's Children's Mental Health and Emotional or Behavioral Disorders Project, will offer information and tips to assist the child who is depressed in school and help promote successful outcomes. Special Education, 504 plans, and other educational supports will be discussed.
