Mental Health Issues in Camp

A healthy part of children’s emotional development includes occasional bouts of feeling down or stressed, but how do you know when it’s serious? Depression and anxiety are two of the most common childhood mental health disorders. Since you’re not a therapist, how should you respond? Learn practical, supportive, and ethical ways to help children cope and build resiliency.

Through this webinar, participants will learn to:

• Define disorders, behaviors, and reasonable expectations.
• Respond with appropriate activities and communication.
• Explore cognitive-behavioral techniques to increase coping and resiliency.
