January’s Eat Chat Parent featured Mind Springs Health President and CEO Sharon Raggio, LPC LMFT, Gerry Lopez and Mel McCalley. The interactive workshop focused on self esteem, character strengths, coping and resilience and the vital role these traits play in our and our children’s lives. The Eat Chat Parent programs, put on by the Eagle River Youth Coalition, encourages parents to talk with their kids about tough topics and to communicate about the topic at least three to four years prior to the behavior occurring. Each session explores a mental health topic including technology wellness.
