    Join us as we prepare for Dr. Shimi Kang’s visit to Barrington High School at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, January 30th to present “The Self-Motivated Kid: Raising Healthy, Happy Kids in This Modern World”.

    Dr. Kang offers practical advice on how to foster children’s own internal drive and a lifelong love of learning. Steering away from the pushy “tiger” and the passive/permissive “jellyfish” parenting models, Dr. Kang proposes that parents emulate the highly social dolphin and focus on maintaining balance in their children’s lives to gently yet authoritatively guide them toward lasting health, happiness, and success. Her second book, The Self-Motivated Kid, provides a guide to the art and science of encouraging children to develop their own internal drive and a lifelong love of learning and was awarded the 2015 USA Book News International Book Award for Parenting and Family.

    “Vaping 101” for Parents and the Community

    Traditional cigarette usage has fallen among teens nearly 23% over the past 40 years, but more than 2 million middle and high schoolers are now using e-cigarettes, or “vaping.” According to the Lake County Underage Drinking and Drug Prevention Task Force, rates of vaping in Barrington, Lake Zurich, and Wauconda are 3 times that of other communities in Lake County.

    “According to the U.S. Surgeon General, six out of 10 teens believe that using e-cigarettes causes only ‘a little’ or ‘some’ harm, as long as they don’t vape daily. But that’s not true, and the risks range from the physical to the psychological.

    In teens, nicotine is more addictive and can mess with the brain’s hardwiring, leading to mood disorders and permanent impulse control. Plus, e-cigarette smokers are four times more likely to become traditional cigarette smokers. On top of these concerns, e-cigarettes can also be used as a delivery system for marijuana and other drugs.” (ref: Your Teen For Parents)

    Join BStrong Together, parents, and community members as we learn the basics of vaping and e-cigarettes.  Lake County Health Department Community Specialist Danielle, Ryan, Barrington High School Deans Jennifer Robinson and Joe Molloy will be joined by Barrington Police Department Liaison Detective John McGowan to educate the community and answer questions about this dangerous new trend that is becoming increasingly popular in both middle and high schools nationwide.

    ADULT MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID

    Adult Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour training course ideal for anyone who interfaces with the public. It was developed because more than 1 in 4 adults will have a mental health challenge such as depression, anxiety, impulse control or misuse of drugs or alcohol in any given year. The National Council on Community Behavioral Healthcare has begun working with community advocates to implement MHFA to equip the public with the needed skills to help people who are experiencing a mental health crisis. The data demonstrates that this program helps those trained to better identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness, which improves the outcome of the event for everyone. The training open to anyone interested in learning about mental illness and how to respond to someone in a mental health crisis. No previous mental health training needed.

    Training session is from 8:00 am – 4:30 pm (BYO lunch).
    All attendees receive a certificate of attendance for completing the 8-hour course.

    All day training, plus course book ($20 value) for $50
