The Child Mind Institute and Tuesday's Children will present, "Raising Resilient Children", a Speak Up for Kids talk with Alan Ravitz, MD, MS, Senior Pediatric Psychopharmacologist at the Child Mind Institute. Dr. Ravitz's talk will focus on how to foster resilience and support children as they recover from the loss of a parent or other loved one. He will also discuss the current developments in research and what that means in practice for kids and families. The talk will emphasize that what happens after a disturbing event, how parents and other caring adults support children and encourage them to express their feelings, can make a big difference in a child's recovery.

About Speak Up for Kids
This is one of hundreds of Speak Up for Kids talks that will take place around the country during National Children's Mental Health Awareness Week (May 6-12, 2012) as part of our annual public education campaign. Speak Up for Kids was created in 2010 to encourage child mental health professionals across the country to give scientifically sound talks in their communities about childhood mental disorders and topics relating to raising healthy, happy kids. It has grown into a broad campaign to end the stigma, lack of awareness, and misinformation that cause so many children to miss out on treatments that can change their lives. It is time to talk about the mental health of our children. Learn more at childmind.org/SpeakUpforKids
