Teen panel forum + Coping with stress
Presented by Oregon Youthline’s teen crisis hotline volunteers and Outreach Specialist Jarid Rother
Youthline returns to ILEAD for a third year in a row offering two workshop sessions focusing on teen mental health awareness. A Real Talk Forum is offered as a workshop session where a teen panel will share their experiences serving at Youthline in Portland and answer your questions too. Jarid Rother’s role as YouthLine’s Outreach Specialist has him connecting with people from across the state of Oregon to facilitate valuable conversations destigmatizing mental health, normalizing help-seeking behavior in youth, and promoting YouthLine as a resource. His stress management presentation will help you identify your own stressors as well creating a personal plan of supports for the future. This workshop has been offered in the past at ILEAD with teens speaking highly of it. Don’t miss it!
