Covid-19 is not the only health crisis we are facing: e-cigarette use increased 78% among high school students from 2017 to 2018, prompting the Surgeon General to classify youth vaping as an epidemic. Currently, approximately one in five high school students use e-cigarettes. Join PAVe’s (Parents Against Vaping e-cigarettes) Mimi Boublik and addiction psychiatrist Dr. Jonathan Avery to understand how vaping affects our children’s bodies and brains, and how to recognize the signs of vaping to protect our children’s health.

It's okay to not be okay. At any moment in time, one in five teens will face a mental health challenge. Anxiety, depression, and feelings of isolation may be especially heightened right now, making the need for early intervention by parents and caring adults even more important. Join Dr. Andrew Ecker from PNW BOCES and  Michael Orth, Commissioner, Westchester County Dept. of Community Mental Health, to learn more about how to tell the difference between normal "teen angst" and signs that your child may need additional support.
