Did you know that 1 in 5 children have a parent who suffers from mental illness? The statistics are significant yet the mental health support for these children is minimal.
The Mental Health Association’s (MHA) Intensive Family Support Services (IFSS) is aiming to fill this need by designing a special art-based curriculum for youth (school-aged and high school) who have a family member (i.e., parent, sibling, cousin, etc.) experiencing mental health issues.
MHA’s art therapists and licensed counselors will facilitate a 2-part workshop that will provide youth with a supported space to receive mental health education, develop connection with peers, and creatively express themselves through art.
This workshop will be held in person at the Verona Public Library during the following days and times:
Monday, July 11th from 4 pm to 5 pm
Monday, July 18th from 4 pm to 5 pm
