Event Details

During Mental Health Awareness Month, Moving Traditions invites parents and educators of Jewish youth to join us for a conversation about how to best support teen wellbeing, resilience, and mental health.  

Rabbi Daniel Brenner will sit down with Dr. Jess Shatkin, a leading Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist at NYU, and a teen activist focused on mental health. We will share trends among Jewish teens and how we can support their wellbeing through Jewish identity and community.   

We will be asking difficult questions like: 

  • How can we teach our teens the skills they need to be resilient in the face of adversity?
  • What does the spectrum between wellbeing and mental health look like? How can you know if a teen needs professional support? 
  • How can parents support their own mental wellbeing and model healthy living for the teens in their lives? 

Following the one-hour discussion, we invite participants to stay connected for an optional “after-party” where they can network, share reflections, and continue the conversation among other parents and educators.
