On the best days parenting is a challenge we accept openly. On other days the challenge can seem scary or overwhelming. Throughout the development of our children manyquestions arise around what is typical versus what is of concern. These questions are increasingly complicated when the concerns are related to behavioral or mental health difficulties. There are many unknowns when supporting a child with a mental illness.
To help provide clarity and guidance the Scituate Public Schools is offering a series of informational and supportive group meetings for caregivers of students in grades 6-12. Each month the group will meet to receive updated information on relevant topics such as medication, impact on daily living, discipline, and other key points. The group will also have time to come together to ask questions, provide feedback, and mostimportantly give and receive support from other caregivers.
