Posted on: October 1, 2018  |  Posted in: Community Blog

On Thursday, September 27, the Community Prevention & Safety Alliance (CPSA) hosted its first “What I Wish My Parents Knew” Forum at Serra High School. Over 80 parents, youth, and facilitators gathered to discuss topics on:

  • Preventing Teen Alcohol & Drug Use
  • Raising Children in the Digital Age
  • Military Teen Life
  • Building Relationships & Conversations with Teens
  • Mental Health & Wellness
  • Handling Stress for 21st Century Families

In addition to a meal, CPSA also provided a space for parents to interact with 10 resource tables. These tables included: UC San Diego, Live Well San Diego, McAlister Institute, NAMI San Diego, Sharp Behavioral Health Services, Serra High School’s Wellness Center, MCRD San Diego, Jewish Family Service’s Positive Parenting Program, Community Health Improvement Partners (CHIP), and Military OneSource.

Thank you to all partners, facilitators, and resource providers in making our first “What I Wish My Parents Knew” a success! Stay tuned in Spring 2019 for the next “What I Wish I Knew” event!
