If you think health care is a vital issue for our community, know that there is a local organization doing some great things, and it needs and deserves your support. All are invited to the Friends of the Sandy Segal Youth Health Center’s annual meeting and program virtually this year. The zoom is scheduled for Monday, November 16, 2020. Installation of officers and President Diana Hauptman’s review of the year will take place from 6:30 to 7:00 p.m. From 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. there will be two simultaneous presentations, one for CCMS and CCHS students and another with parents.
Cheryl Karp Eskin, Program Director of Teen Line, will lead the parent support webinar.
The pandemic has uprooted our lives and we are all adjusting to our “new normal.” We are worried about the impact on our children, educationally, socially and emotionally. Concerns about anxiety and depression are heightened. Join us to learn more about how to help your children through this pandemic, when to worry, and how to build resilience. Ms. Eskin is the Program Director at Teen Line, a teen to teen hotline where teenagers can talk to a trained teen listener about any problem, no matter how big or small. She is also the co-chair of the Los Angeles Suicide Prevention Network and a parent of a teen and tween.

Students can join a special webinar just for Culver City teens presented by Teen Line. The organization has been operating its teen-to-teen Hotline for almost 40 years, offering teenagers a safe haven, a place to talk things out with another teen in a nurturing and non-judgmental environment. If you are feeling overwhelmed, lonely, anxious, you are not alone. Teen Line has the unique ability to connect with teenagers because teens form the core of the organization. This webinar will be for students only and will be led by Teen Line’s Outreach Coordinator as well as a few of the teens that are part of the program. Please log on – no cameras or speaking required – you are welcome to simply listen or ask questions in the chat.
