Central Penn Parent and webinar sponsor UPMC hosted a session June 24 on mental health and talking with your teen, a topic of importance at any time, but it’s especially prevalent during COVID-19.
The pandemic has changed our lives in ways we never would have imagined.
As we all are aware, many of us are feeling more stressed and anxious. This stress does not just affect adults — children and teens are also at risk. Fortunately, there are things we can do to help our kids cope.
Dr. Melissa Brown, is a licensed psychologist and senior clinical manager with UPMC Pinnacle Psychological Associates, spoke about ways you can help ease anxiety for yourself and your kids.
Dr. Brown is a 2007 graduate of the clinical psychology program at Chestnut Hill College with a post-doctoral fellowship specializing in the treatment of autism and developmental disorders.
For the past 14 years, Dr. Brown has treated toddlers, children, adolescents, and adults with co-morbid diagnoses of autism and anxiety, obsessive-compulsive symptoms, depression, ADHD, and trauma in numerous types of mental health settings.
