It can be an exciting time for our kids when they are deciding how and when to pursue post secondary opportunities after high school. When our young people have had mental health challenges this transition can sometimes be met with additional concerns. What can be put in place before school starts? Is it okay to take fewer courses? What can they do if things become difficult?
Come together with other families to watch this video presentation featuring Dawn Schell from the University of Victoria, Melissa Feddersen from the University of British Columbia Okanagan and Victoria Keddis, a parent with lived experience; as they discuss strategies and points to consider as your youth embarks on this transition.
This video presentation will be followed by a facilitated discussion by a FamilySmart Parent Peer Support Worker.
