Teen Mental Health:
Typical & Atypical Development
with Larissa Predy
ADHD Edmonton is pleased to welcome guest presenter Larissa Predy.
“Teen mental health” contains a broad spectrum of possible concerns for parents. But how do we know what is expected behaviour and what isn’t? Teens experience heightened mood sensitivity as the teenage brain goes through major shifts in growth and development. Teens with ADHD are particularly vulnerable during this stage of life and require a different supportive approach. This presentation will discuss what is typical in teen development, how negative/stressful experiences affect mental health in teens, how teens often cope, and what adults can do to support them.
