Third, a 9/26 webinar on teen depression  –



Teen Depression – What Schools and Parents Can Do When Help is Refused


Tuesday, September 26, 2017 

PM (ET) / 4 PM (PT)






Jami doesn’t want you to feel alone.


Jami’s daughter was unhappy, struggling with anxiety and school, and refusing to get help. Jami worked tirelessly to educate herself on her daughter’s needs.


Along the way, Jami had to work with her daughter’s schools to ensure that she had the appropriate services in place. Now, Jami shares her experiences to help other parents and caring adults know that they are not alone.


Join our Free Teen Depression Webinar to hear Jami’s story.



During this webinar, you’ll hear from Jami Ingledue and Dr. Nancy Rappaport an experienced clinician, professor, and researcher in teen depression. You’ll learn, and be able to ask questions, about

  • ways parents can work with schools to help teens who refuse treatment
  • how to talk to teens about depression
  • actionable steps you can take to help a struggling teen





View the webinar live to have the opportunity to ask questions of our panelists. If you can’t make it, include your questions when you register, then watch the recorded webinar on demand.



This webinar is designed for anyone interested in teen mental health. Although clinicians are welcome to register,

the program is intended for a general audience.


If you know someone who would benefit from this program, please spread the word!
