Find Out How to Tell When a Kid is Struggling Emotionally

Help us promote a special conversation May 4 on recognizing the symptoms of a kid who is struggling emotionally. This is an event for parents, educators and youth-serving professionals to your PTAs, as well as education and health partners. In addition to the email announcement below, download our template newsletter article and tailor it for your members and partners. Also, please share National PTA's Facebook and Twitter posts about this important event.
Half of all lifetime cases of mental disorders begin by age 14. Early detection and treatment is key for student success. Join The American Psychological Association's Katherine C. Nordal, PhD, Executive Director for Professional Practice, renowned psychologist Dr. Mary Alvord and National PTA President Otha Thornton as we explore how to recognize when a youth is struggling emotionally, and what to do about it when you know a kid needs help.
