RUMFORD — A free presentation on how the adolescent brain works and ways we can help our teenagers grow and stay resilient, confident and happy is scheduled for 6-7 p.m. Tuesday, April 14 in the Muskie Auditorium at Mountain Valley High School in Rumford.

The presentation is designed for anyone who works with youth, including parents, teachers, coaches, coalition members, staff and nurses.

The workshop will provide a deeper understanding of how unaddressed anxiety, stress and trauma can trigger a host of preventable mental and behavioral health issues including addiction, depression, self-harm, violence and bullying and more.
