District 117 Presents: Erika’s Lighthouse

On March 14, 2017, Community High School District 117 will be hosting a presentation by Peggy Kubert LCSW, Director of Education and Programing from Erika’s Lighthouse. This will take place in the Lakes Community High School Auditorium at 6:30 p.m. 

Erika’s Lighthouse is a non-profit organization with a mission to educate communities about teen depression, eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness, and empower teens to take charge of their mental health. Peggy’s presentation is entitled, “The Changing Moods of Adolescence: What’s Normal, What’s Not, and How to Manage.” Within her program, she will discuss how stress impacts our children, awareness factors that put youth at risk for anxiety and depression, along with recognizing the difference between normal adolescent moods and depression.

Further, she will address how to build healthy protective factors in our children, as well as discuss when and where to seek help. For more information and resources on adolescents and mental health go to:
