Parent Cafe: Gang Prevention: What Every Parent Needs to Know
Parent Cafe is an initiative of the New York Psychotherapy and Counseling Center (NYPCC) developed during the COVID-19 pandemic that allows parents, guardians, and families within our community to participate in a virtual discussion group where industry leaders present topics that are relevant to the community's mental health, share tips to manage mental health, and share resources. The NYPCC invited our Center to discuss Youth Gang Prevention: What Every Parent Needs to Know.
Spanish Translation will be available.
