Mental health resources for families

In March and May of 2023, St. Anthony - New Brighton Schools partnered with Mental Health Connect to provide a series for parents to learn more about children's mental health. 

This first session focused on how mental health impacts daily life and explain behavioral health, mental health and mental illness. Their discussion focuses on the prevalence of mental illness, data about mental health illnesses and how parents and the community can reduce the stigma.
The second session was focused on developing a parent's understanding of how to stay connected to their child when social media and other influential factors are present. Presentation speakers included the Minnesota Prevention and Recovery Alliance, District Mental Health Coordinator Lucy Rosario, local law enforcement and mental health professionals.
