COLORADO SPRINGS -

We're focusing on mental health and we want to let you know about an event in Colorado Springs this Saturday November 4th, called the Springs Mental Health Summit 2017.  It's a one day conference intended to empower and equip everyone with the tools needed to understand and support the mental health needs in our community.

Dr. Mark Mayfield with Mayfield Counseling who's opened an office on the north end of Colorado Springs to directly confront the teen suicide cluster we’ve had in our area is taking part in the conference.  Mayfield Counseling has also been holding regular parent talks to further empower parents to be a resource for their kids.  Dr. Mayfield say's the Springs Mental Health Summit is a perfect chance to gain important tools and knowledge to help your kids.

"I think a lot of times parents are so busy that they think if I just have a minute and we talk about it and I ask things like is your brain together, Are you good, Let's go, you'll be fine, and we don't really slow down and pick upon the body language, or pick up on emoting feelings that are in the room like the anxiety the fidgeting.  Your kids are going to tell you these things whether they verbalize it or not."

There is a small cost to attend saturday's mental health summit it's being held at New Life Church.  Registration opens at 8am, and the Summit begins at 9 am.  You can register online at  www.Springssummit.Org
