Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton and South Shore Mental Health Presents Free Community Education Program on Emotional Wellness for Students

Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton (BID-Milton) and South Shore Mental Health will present a free community education program, Fostering Emotional Wellness During College-Age Years on Wednesday, April 26th from 6-8:30pm in the Milton High School Auditorium.

This program, part of the hospital’s Integrated Care Learning Consortium, will allow parents and students to hear from a panel of experts about the variety of programs and resources available to help students balance their academics and emotional and behavioral wellness. This program is specifically for parents of middle school, high school and college age students as well as the students themselves.

Speakers at this event include: Karen Cahill, director of guidance at Milton High School; Vic DiGravio, president and CEO of the Association of Behavioral Health; Kristen Woodbery, vice president of rehabilitation and recovery and South Shore Mental Health; Jill Rosetti, principal at Blue Hills Regional Technical School; Rod Skinner and Lisa Morin, from Milton Academy; Alison Markson, director and licensed psychologist at the Curry College Counseling Center; and Jennifer Morazes, Ph.D, Genesis Coaching and Consulting.

“As parents and caregivers, we want to foster emotional wellness in our teenagers and support them to make safe and healthy decisions. There is much pressure today to succeed academically, to attend the best colleges and universities and to generally make the “right” decisions in life and after high school,” says Lisa Braude, Ph.D, senior advisor-health policy and grant management at BID-Milton. “This is a unique opportunity to hear from a panel of leading experts on important health topics.”

The Integrated Care Learning Consortium partnership between BID-Milton and South Shore Mental Health works to raise awareness of behavioral health issues, provide education to community members and connect human services and health care professionals throughout the area.
