The Hills Valley Community Coalition would like to invite you to a dynamic parent/teen education program, “Split Image: Secret Struggles of Teens,” Thursday, May 3, 6-9pm to be held at Pascack Hills High School. 

The evening program will feature a Mental Health Resource Fair at 6pm followed by keynote speaker Kate Fagan, ESPN Journalist and Author of What Made Maddy Run, at 7:15pm.  Kate’s message is impactful regarding split image, social media, performance perfection, and the toll it has taken on our youth. Her message reminds us how diligent we need to be in staying in tune with our kids and their mental health needs. 

 

The Mental Health Resource Fair from 6-7pm will promote “Stigma Free Mental Health” and encourage families to access the resources available to them in our community prior to the keynote.  Our hope is to provide resources that allow participants to meet face-to-face with an array of services available in our region.  In addition, we encourage reading What Made Maddy Run prior to the program. We will follow-up with a book discussion after the keynote in small groups in the Pascack Hills Media Center.  The discussion will be facilitated by a few mental health professionals and staff members about issues the book covers and struggles our teens face.  Registration for the program is available online through this form: https://goo.gl/forms/KWff7dQ5msyDfweD3.


We hope you can join us for this important event.

Respectfully,
