The DoDEA NDSP is hosting a special virtual conversation that will feature a live panel of mental health experts who educate, treat, or conduct research on military-connected youth and families. They hope to give valuable insight into recognizing signs and symptoms of various mental health concerns and provide tips to deal with them, including getting assistance in remote OCONUS locations. In addition, event attendees will be able to ask the panelists direct questions during the Q&A session.
