bdaley


Mercy High School and Fusion Academy will host "Overcoming Overwhelm: Supporting the Future of Our Youth," a panel discussion with mental health and community education professionals about the pressures students face, and how we can help counteract the effects.

They will address how to encourage student resilience in the face of overwhelming pressure, and answer questions such as: 'How do we inoculate against burnout, anxiety and the academic and social pressures overwhelming our children?' and 'What behaviors and emotions can we spread to others that counter the negative feelings that engulf our students, leading to real-world health and wellness problems?'

The event will be held in Kohl Mansion at Mercy Burlingame on April 11, 2018. The panel includes psychotherapists and authors Lee Daniel Kravetz, LMFT, and Carol Langlois, PhD, and community engagement director Mary Hofstedt, Ed.M. The discussion will be moderated by Charlene Margot, M.A., a parent and community education advocate.

The event is open to the community and free to attend, but seating is limited! Reserve yours HERE.
