During Mental Health Awareness Month, Moving Traditions invites parents and educators of Jewish youth to join us for a conversation about how to best support teen well-being, resilience, and mental health.

Rabbi Daniel Brenner will sit down with Dr. Jess Shatkin, a leading child and adolescent psychiatrist at NYU, and teen activists focused on mental health. We will share trends among Jewish teens and how we can support their well-being through Jewish identity and community.

We will be asking difficult questions like:

  • How can we teach our teens the skills they need to be resilient in the face of adversity?
  • What does the spectrum between well-being and mental health look like? How can you know if a teen needs professional support?
  • How can parents support their own mental well-being and model healthy living for the teens in their lives?

Following the one-hour discussion, we invite participants to stay connected for an optional “after-party” where they can network, share reflections, and continue the conversation among other parents and educators.

Additional information is available on the Moving Traditions website. Jewish Teen Initiative at CJP is a proud partner and supporter of the important work Moving Traditions is doing to support and inspire teens, families and Jewish professionals in the Greater Boston community and beyond.
