Supporting Teens During COVID-19 – Facebook Live Series

These are challenging times and almost everything about our daily lives looks different. Join us for Supporting Teens During COVID-19, part of our Coping During COVID-19 Facebook Live series on Seattle Children’s Facebook page. Panelists will include Seattle Children’s providers Kendra Read, PhD, director of Anxiety Programs in Outpatient Psychiatry, Yolanda Evans, MD, physician in Adolescent Medicine, Gary Stobbe, MD, director of Adult Autism Transitional Services, and Hilary Mead, PhD, co-director of the Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Early Onset Psychosis Programs in Outpatient Psychiatry. The discussion will be moderated by Kashi Arora, mental and behavioral health project manager in Community Health and Benefit.

This presentation will cover:

  • Managing anxiety and uncertainty
  • Supporting graduating seniors
  • Social connection during physical distancing
  • Supporting teens with Autism or ID/DD

There is a question and answer section at the end of the presentation. You may submit questions as comments during the Facebook Live.

Supporting Teens During COVID-19 is a virtual event and will be available only on Seattle Children’s Facebook page. Please note that there will be no in-person attendance and anyone coming to the hospital will not be allowed to enter. Thank you, everyone, for understanding.
