Sponsored by the PAUSD & Community Partnering Organizations
Monday, March 23 7:00 -9:00 p.m. — Haymarket Theater, Palo Alto High School – 50 Embarcardero Road
Please join us for an important community event, supporting Asian-American families, although all are welcome. The panel will include members of the Stanford Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health Sciences, Asian Americans for Community Involvement (AACI), Palo Alto University, other affiliated agencies, and the local community to answer questions about student mental health, cultural issues, improving family communication, and supporting our families in time of crisis.
What are the stresses faced by Asian-American families in our area? How can we increase communication within and among our families? A panel of mental health professionals and parents will reflect with participants about these issues and share some strategies that can help. The event will be in English and translated into Mandarin through an interpreter.
In This Together: A place to share, support, and heal is a teen forum where youth will have the opportunity to participate in a series of teen discussion circles led by teen-selected adult facilitators and will address topics that teens have identified as critical to their well-being. During these discussions, adults are invited to join an adult support workshop.
