Lots of heart in the February Northwell School Mental Health Newsletter! Taking care of your heart tips and information during American Heart Month are included in this issue, as well as and workshop opportunities. Sign up for virtual Lunch & Learn session on Competition & Academic Burnout or Risk Behavior in Teens. These workshops are dedicated to supporting parents, such as the series on School Avoidance. Register for the evening virtual "Health Starts at Home" series with Cohen Children's Medical Center. Learn about raising confident kids, gender and sexuality, and more. Commack's partnership with Northwell Health gives our families access to a dedicated Behavioral Health Center which will provide timely access to mental health services including evaluations, referrals for counseling, and immediate treatment. The Northwell Behavioral Health Center will be open during winter break.
Please be reminded that Northwell Behavioral Health Center is more than a resource for a person in crisis. The highlight of the services offered is that they assist families to find providers (doctors, therapists, psychiatrists, and more), who take their insurance. The center is exclusively available for students of partnering districts and is located at 2171 Jericho Turnpike, Suite 345, in Commack.Click here for the newsletter.
