New research data shows that suicide rates for black children are twice that of white children. North Carolina has the highest prevalence of children with unmet mental health needs. This event is a discussion forum with Q&A consisting of a panel of mental health professionals. The objective is to educate parents on ways to assess their child(ren) who may be suffering from anxiety/depression and are potentially at risk for suicidal ideation and behaviors.
The goal is to give parents tools and resources available within the community to assist them with getting their child proper mental health therapy and treatment. In addition, parents will receive tips on how to talk to their children about depression and suicide.
