The Mental Health of Children, Adolescents and Their Families

Mid-Carolina AHEC is partnering once again with the Upper Midlands Rural Health Network to host the school nurse workshop.  The program will take place on October 13 at the Gateway Conference Center in Richburg, SC.

The program is held annually in Chester or Fairfield County and school nurses from across the state attend.  This year the program will also be available to social workers.  This year’s program will provide 6.5 hours of nursing credit, 2.0 hours of social work credit, and 4.5 hours of non-social work credit. 

The topic of the program is “Mental Health of Children, Adolescents, and Their Families.” Speakers for the program represent NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) South Carolina and Catawba County Mental Health. There will also be two speakers who will share their personal journey of living with mental illness with an onset during school years.
