Eat Chat Parent RSVP
Please join us for the final Eat Chat Parent session of the school year on either April 3 or April 4, 2019. During this free talk, we will be discussing youth substance use and toxic stress with Colorado's expert on this subject, Kari Commerford, M.A.

This Eat Chat Parent session will addresses the importance of educating youth, parents and community members about the developmentally appropriate changes and challenges that youth experience during adolescence. Focus will be placed on neurobiological (structural, hormonal and neurotransmitter), social-emotional (identity formation and physical vs. emotional high risk behaviors), and cognitive changes (adolescent egocentrism).

Participants will gain an understanding of how these developmentally appropriate changes and challenges can lead to high risk behaviors and substance use and mental health concerns. Education on Adverse Childhood Experiences and Toxic Stress will also be included.
