Mental health workshops for parents via Zoom set for Nov. 16, 17

The Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) Department of Student Services will host virtual parent and caregiver workshops on Nov. 16 and 17. All virtual presentations will include an interpreter for Spanish-speaking parents and caregivers. Student Services staff members — school counselors, school psychologists and pupil personnel workers — will continue to share information during the school year that mirrors social emotional learning (SEL) instruction students receive in their classes.

During the workshops, parents and caregivers will gain knowledge of SEL information, strategies and coping skills students are taught. Topics for the secondary-level workshops will include depression, healthy relationships, healthy communication, stress management, life changes and adjustments. Some of the topics for the elementary-level workshops will include the alignment of Move This World strategies, bullying and managing strong emotions.

Parents and caregivers of middle and high school students are invited to attend a virtual workshop at 6:30 p.m., Nov. 16. Monica Moore, the school psychologist at Thomas Stone High School, will talk about depression.
