The ‘feel good’ reward of texting, gaming, and social media communication is taking a suprising toll on our children. The rates of anxiety, depression and suicide attempts are skyrocketing among adolescents, and those serious conditions are correlated to the amount of time connected to the Internet and social media via cell phones (and screens of all kinds).
In this meeting, “The iGen at Risk: ...“ Dr. Wehrenberg will discuss the epidemic of depression and anxiety among our youth and what parents can do to help children thrive in our increasingly tech-connected world.

Norton. Dr. Margaret blogs for Psychology Today on depression, she is an international trainer, a highly sought-after public speaker.
This event is free and open to the public.
