Join us for an evening with Jon Mattleman focused on mental health and our chidren.

Anxiety is the #1 most diagnosed mental health disorder in the USA, and 25% of all adolescents have a diagnosed anxiety disorder --- including over 7% of youth ages 3 – 17. And how many more children are affected and undiagnosed?

This interactive and fun (yes, we can have fun while talking about anxiety!!) workshop will provide the language and direction adults/parents need to be of real support to their anxious children. 

Former Director of the Town of Needham’s Youth and Family for 24 years, Jon has a strong pulse on what's happening in the Needham community and will be utilizing data, gleaned from both Needham Youth Risk Behavior Survey and Metrowest Mental Health survey, in his observations and recommend strategies.
