In conjunction with the first annual “Green Ribbon Day” for mental health awareness at school, the Acalanes Parent Club, Wellness Committee will host a panel discussion of presenters including: Dr. Daniel Robbins, Md., Acalanes Support Counselor Mary Threlkel, MFT, Leslie Garcia of the Contra Costa Crisis Center and Kate Wolffe a recent Miramonte Graduate/Current UC Berkeley Student. Kate Wolffe is a columnist for the Daily Cal Newspaper and has written an article on High School Stress.
Each presenter will give a brief introduction of their background and the work they do in the community to alleviate teen stress. This will then be followed by an interactive panel discussion with questions raised from the audience.
The Acalanes Parent Club Wellness Chairs, Holly, Graham and Emma will chair this discussion and will be available in the lobby after the event to answer questions and hand out literature. There will be signup sheets for further information.
This event is open to all AUHSD High Schools, Stanley Middle School Parents/Teachers/Staff and interested members of the local community.
The need for such an event arose out of the recent district wide Challenge Success data, we would all like to bring happiness back to our schools.
