Post- Pandemic Mental Health
May 10, 2023 - 7 p.m. - WCSS Library
Presented by Dr. Maggie Mamen, Psychologist

About the Presentation:

As widely reported in the media, mental health issues seem to have become something of a "long-Covid" epidemic for both children and adults. This presentation looks at the components of emotional wellness, the on-going effects of the pandemic, how we can recognize when the fallout requires intervention, and what we, as parents and educators, can do to help ourselves and our children get back to normal – whatever "normal" means.

About the Presenter:

Dr. Maggie Mamen is a clinical psychologist in private practice in Nepean who has worked with children, adolescents and families for over 40 years, but who now focuses exclusively on consultations with parents. She has published four books, including the international best- seller The Pampered Child Syndrome, and gives frequent presentations to community groups, professionals, and parents. She is the mother of three very grown-up children and Nana to four grandchildren, one of whom has unbelievably just gotten her driver’s license.

Refreshments will be served. Please consider making a cash donation for the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre.
