SPREAD THE WORD!: Upcoming Parent Event

Our friends at the PCLG, know that parents and families are juggling a lot these days, and they want to help. They have created a new monthly workshop series called “Let’s Talk About It” where parents and caregivers can check in for a short topic on navigating children’s mental health. Their first Let’s Talk About It event will be a visit with Angela Davis, a Children’s Mental Health Case Manager, Tuesday, February 16th at 7:00pm.
