Event Description

On Monday April 15 at 7 pm, The Oasis in Kanata, a place for caregivers of people with mental illness, will host our next information session: "Understanding the Teenage Brain." Parents of children who develop mental illness often tend to notice the first symptoms that "something’s not quite right" as their children enter their teenage years. During this phase of brain development, adolescents are particularly vulnerable to serious psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia, depression, and drug addiction. Dr. Gretchen Conrad of The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre will explore how parents and caregivers can best help their children through this critical transitional phase . . .while maintaining their own mental health. Free. No preregistration required. All welcome. See the attached poster for full details. As always, these information events are open to anyone interested in the topic being presented.
