As we continue to exist in a “socially distanced” world, we are eager to provide your child with an opportunity for safe socialization and support around navigating friendships and emotions. This year we are planning to offer groups for children over telehealth (video). Our plan this year is for our groups to start in late October and run through the 2020-2021 school year with breaks over holidays.

Children & Adolescents

Now more than ever people are relying on their screens for school, work, and everyday connection. Devices can be used as a social outlet as well as a coping tool for teens. Unfortunately, screens can also be a conduit for social pressure and angst.

Join JCFS Response for Teens staff experts and local teens in a virtual discussion to increase awareness of screen use on teen mental health, identify strategies to improve communication between teens and parents, and share tools to build resilience and expand coping skills for young people.
