Parents Start Local Mental-Health Support Group
A group of parents who saw a need for a locally based, ongoing group to support other parents concerned about the mental health and well-being of their teens will be launching such a group this month.
The mental-health subcommittee of parent-advocacy group SELPA 1 CAC will host its first “Parent Chat” on Tuesday, Feb. 23, at the Los Altos Library. The group is supposed to be peer-driven, though a licensed marriage and family therapist will attend as a facilitator, and is open to parents of any children ages 14 and up.
“Parent Chat” will meet in the Orchard Room at the Los Altos Library, 13 San Antonio Road, Los Altos, 7-8:30 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays of every month. For more information, contact Trudy Palmer at 650-208-9116 or Donna Soo at 650-823-0997.
