‘Mental Health Informed Parent’ workshops set for Sept. 28

MADISON – In Madison and Triana, a ‘double feature’ of workshops entitled “The Mental Health Informed Parent” will show strategies for supporting a student’s well-being.

Mental health professionals in Madison City Schools, along with Madison City Council of PTAs, are presenting the free workshops on Sept. 28 at Madison Public Library, 142 Plaza Blvd. from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and at Triana Public Library, 357 Record St. from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

“MCS continues to expand our mental health services and awareness efforts,” MCS Superintendent Ed Nichols said. “Learn how to proactively support your student’s mental health at this upcoming informative workshop for parents and caregivers.”

The workshop will identify signs of a mental health struggle and what to do when it happens, along with methods to build positive habits for mental health with a student. Both programs cover the same materials, so participants can choose the time and location that works best to attend.

The Central Office staff involved with the workshop includes Stephanie Allen, MCS District Mental Health Coordinator, and Heather Myers, MCS Social Worker.

“The Mental Health Informed Parent” in-person event will provide a safe and welcoming space for parents to learn, share experiences and gain valuable insights. Parents can discover practical strategies for fostering a positive mental health environment at home, learn about the warning signs of common conditions of mental health problems in youth, and learn about the available resources and support networks in the Madison and Huntsville area.

Madison City Council of PTAs includes all elected PTA officers in Madison City Schools PTA units of good standing. The group’s collective mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

Tickets to “The Mental Health Informed Parent” are not required, but participants can reserve a seat by visiting madisoncity.k12.al.us and clicking the “Parents & Students” dropdown menu. Then, click “Mental Health Matters,” and scroll to click the registration link.
