‘Fostering Youth Mental Wellness In A Stressful World’ Presentation Scheduled For February 25

WAYNE – Plan on joining a virtual event where the School Community Intervention and Prevention (SCIP) is partnering with Lincoln Public Schools, Bryan Health and the Lancaster Prevention Coalition to put on two valuable presentations about supporting the health and well-being of our community’s youth.

According to a release from Wayne Community Schools, our future’s greatest asset is youth. Schools, parents, caregivers and communities all play an important role in providing supportive pathways for the youth as they navigate through childhood and adolescence.

Dr. Melissa Lafferty with the Nebraska Mental Health Centers will lead the presentation from 6:30 – 8 p.m. on Thursday, February 25 through Zoom.

Meeting ID: 814 0928 6209

Dr. Melissa Lafferty is a therapist with Nebraska Mental Health Centers. She’ll discuss the role of stress on mental health and provide strategies that everyone can take to promote mental wellness as a means to better cope with the stress of the current world around us.

The role that teachers and parents can play to help support youth by promoting positive coping techniques will also be addressed.
