As parents, educators, and community members, we worry about our children's health, well-being, and success in life. Yet, teen mental illness is consistently becoming more problematic, leading to negative long-term outcomes. Dr. Stuart Slavin will discuss the key environmental factors contributing to this epidemic and what can be done about it. We will explore ways parents and educators can reduce academic load and pressure without lowering standards, "dumbing down" curriculum, or missing out on some mythical perfect college application.
