Building Your Personal and Community-Based Toolbox of Resources

Children don’t say, "I had a hard day. Can we talk?” They say, “Will you play with me?" or "Stay out of my room.” Discover fresh ways to communicate with military youth especially when the parent/educator is concerned with mental/behavior health challenges. Learn what steps to take if concerns need to be alleviated and what resources are available. (Registration for MCEC's Global Training Summit Virtual Sessions opens June 25, 2024).
