Event explores dark secret of teen mental illness

"Shedding Light on Teen Mental Health," will be the focus of a community conference on Sunday, March 1 from 1 - 3:30 pm at the West Bloomfield High School auditorium.

Created to raise awareness and address the stigma surrounding teen mental illness, the conference is being convened by the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit and a consortium of caring community partners for parents, teachers, mental health professionals, youth professionals and adults who care for our teens. Only 20% of children suffering from mental disorders receive mental health services in any given year. This conference is designed to open pathways of communication between struggling teens, those who love them and those who can make a positive change in their lives.

The program is open to the public. Pre-registration is a $5 donation to Common Ground, $10 at the door.
