Join Jewish Family & Career Services for the second event in our Mental Health Series, ‘Real Talk About Teen Substance Use and Mental Health in a Post-Pandemic World.’
Through the lens of their book, High, father and son David and Nic Sheff share real talk about teens, mental health, substance use, and how what we already know about kids can inform how we help them navigate their world post-pandemic.
