Parent Education Opportunity: Let's Talk Series: Mental Health & Underage Substance Use

February 2, 2021, 7-8 p.m. PST

In the fourth of six conversations in the Let's Talk Community Discussion series for 2021-22, we will talk about Mental Health and Underage Substance Use. The relationship between mental health and substance use goes in both directions. Teens who struggle with mental health challenges are more likely to use substances. In turn, teens who use substances may be more likely to experience mental health challenges in the future. Our speakers will talk about how this is impacting local youth and what parents and caregivers can do to help.

Valerie Fowler, MFT, IMH, is a Marin-based clinician whose specialization includes post traumatic stress.

Meghan Greenwood is a school counselor at San Rafael City Schools. Prior to that, she was a high school teacher, theater director, and debate coach.

Riya Aghi is a sophomore at Marin Academy. She joined with the Youth Advisory Council to help educate and create solutions for substance use issues young people face.

The discussion will be moderated by Jaclynn Davis who authored the Let's Talk booklets. She received her Masters in Public Health and Social Work. Jackie focuses on adolescent health and youth development through her work with local school districts and teaching at Dominican University.

There will be simultaneous live Spanish interpretation on Zoom.
