8/1免费讲座:湾区高中生分享心理健康-父母如何和孩子有效沟通

面对当今美国社会特别是在湾区惨烈的升学竞争父母们常常左右为难无所亊从。明星高中时不时传来的学生自杀事件象旋风般搅乱了家长们阵脚。某家的孩子或者孩子的某同学患有抑郁症的小道消息如纸包不住的火焦灼着每个听到的人的心。就连一些外表阳光优秀的孩子私下里也有为了保住竞争优势而服用药物的。这是怎么了?是社会,还是我们自己?亦或是两者?

心理健康是一个不容再忽视的课题了!移民家庭青少年如今面对着更严峻的挑战。家长所灌输的价值观和孩子们在外接受的信息的不一致性,加之沟通不良等因素,使得这些青少年在心理和人格发展中都有可能会在不同程度上发生扭曲。及时识别,预防,和帮助治疗各种青少年心理疾病是社会,教育工作者和家长们刻不容缓的责任。
硅谷回音Bay Echo 是一个旨在建立亲子沟通桥梁的501c(3)的非营利组织,其”The Teens Speak Out” 青少年团队将用其亲身经历讲述他们自己或同学的故事,道出他们渴望被理解的心声帮助听众们搭起一座家长孩子偿试沟通的桥梁。我们的演讲者来自Palo Alto, Leland 和Lynbrook 高中The Teens Speak Out 青少年团队的演讲稿出自十多个湾区高中的学生代表

Most Asian families want, and expect their children to have a strong education and to get into the best colleges there is. Unfortunately, there are students from competitive high schools that commit suicide almost every year. A lot of students also go through depression, or identify as having felt depression in some form. A surprising amount of high-achieving students take medication in order to keep going.

It’s not wrong to hope and want for our students to get a good education – so what is going wrong?

Mental health is a very important factor in life. Our mental condition affects our emotions and even how we feel physically. Asian-American students often struggle with depression caused by a variety of reasons, and being able to identify, prevent, and treat this will be helpful for all areas of life.

The Teens Speak Out team at Bay Echo have discovered many of the reasons behind this problem, and some of them have experienced it as well. They can help you understand the causes behind this, how culture clash affects the role of parents and children in depression, and more. You will also learn how to create and foster a healthy environment for yourself, as well as promote positive thinking.

Our speakers are seniors from Palo Alto, Leland, and Lynbrook High Schools. The Teens Speak Out team that researched and prepared for the presentation is made of more than ten students representing many Bay Area high schools.

Share the joy
