PACER Center will host national speaker to address depression in children
Minneapolis: PACER Center will offer “Understanding Depression and How to Develop Skills Needed to Help Your Child,” presented by psychiatrist Dr. L. Read Sulik, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 2 at PACER Center, 8161 Normandale Blvd., Bloomington. This free workshop is for parents of children with disabilities and for professionals.
Parenting a child with mental health challenges can be incredibly difficult at times, but there are skills parents can learn to help their child. In this interactive workshop, Dr. L. Read Sulik will help parents and professionals learn about “The 3s of Depression” — changes in mood, changes in sleep and energy, and changes in thinking — and the most common problems that result.
Participants will learn new skills that they can use to help their child heal, recover, and prevent recurrences of depression.
Dr. Sulik is a child and adolescent, and adult psychiatrist. He is the Chief Integration Officer at PrairieCare, where he leads the organization’s initiatives to integrate behavioral health services into primary care and other settings through the newly founded PrairieCare Institute in Minneapolis. Dr. Sulik, who has received numerous national honors and awards, lectures across the country on children’s mental health issues.
