Grant Halliburton Foundation is once again hosting our adolescent mental health conference When Life Hands You Teenagers on Wednesday, September 25 at Plano Event Center. This promises to be an enlightening conference for mental health professionals, parents, educators, and others who live or work with children and teens.
13 Reasons Why, a Netflix series about a teenage girl who takes her own life, has received mixed reviews from the public and particularly the mental health community. The main concern is that the show arguably sensationalizes teen suicide and makes the topic intriguing and attractive to adolescents. Should teens be watching 13 Reasons Why? Kelly Jameson, Ph.D., a North Dallas therapist in private practice, shares her perspective.
