Upcoming Events

Use our Calendar to import events into your personal calendar.

We ask all teens who participate in our meetings and events to register as members each school year. This not only helps us keep in touch with those who are interested in our group, but also ensures that they see our behavior expectations and agree to the conditions set forth on the application form. We want everyone in attendance to feel secure that that others will not talk about things learned about specific individuals with others. This means no gossiping! We will remind everyone of this very important issue at each meeting!

The first ADHDKCTeen meeting will be September 4th. It’s all about resilience – the ability to pick yourself back up and move forward after any setback or problem. Kids (and adults) with ADHD often struggle with this.

Katherine Melton, MPH, MCHES, the Community Prevention Coordinator from the Johnson County Mental Health Center, will be leading this event.

The event is geared for middle and high school students. Parents are welcome, but not required, to attend. Parents will be required to sign forms – soon to be available here in case your teen will come alone.

We will start with a meet and greet from 6-7pm, followed by the speaker presentation about building resilience from 7-8pm.

To RSVP for this event, please use SignUpGenius.
