Brief overview of disorders that are increasingly common in teens: ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, adolescent depression, anxiety disorders (including OCD). This will include references to “hot topics” like cutting and suicidal references. We’ll discuss the best way for parents to handle these issues, support other families,even if we aren't dealing with these issues in our own homes and how to seek help outside the kingdom. We’ll also discuss what to do/encouragement if your child decides to follow the world, not God at this time.
