Project Description

WHAT IF he/she begins frequently complaining that he is bored with basketball and seems disengaged and almost lazy during games. One month earlier he/she lived for the game. His/her typically packed social calendar has seemed unusually quiet lately. He/she doesn’t seem to be socializing with friends. You contemplate asking, “what’s up?’”


Middle School years can be difficult as kids navigate their way through independence, acceptance, hormonal changes, academic pressure, anxiety, stress, and in some cases depression. What if you see changes in your child’s behavior? What would you do? This program offers parents and teachers the opportunity to discuss challenges and choices kids face on a daily basis.

An interactive discussion between parents and mental health professionals explores the middle school experience including independence, freedom, decision making, friendships, and making mistakes while being able to identify when a child needs help. Learn the signs and symptoms of depression and where and when to seek help.

Contact Rebecca’s Dream if you would like to bring this program to your school.
