Our kids are in crisis.....

Our children are facing a mental health crisis that was compounded by the pandemic, and parents need support and guidance to better understand and support their kids.

Tara Rolstad's programs equip parents with the knowledge and tools they need to recognize:

  • when their children may be struggling with their mental health,
  • when to seek help, and
  • how to provide support.

Let's design a custom program for YOUR community !


  • An estimated 49% of adolescents have struggled with their mental health
  • More than 1 in 10 teens experienced major depression in 2021
  • 60% of those kids received no treatment for their mental health
  • Suicide attempts for teen girls rose 51% in the first quarter of 2021

The pandemic had a devastating impact on adolescent mental health, compounding years of increasing anxiety, depression and suicide. Our kids are hurting more than ever before, just when educators are more overwhelmed than ever by the demands of teaching after a pandemic. 

Expert speaker Tara Rolstad will equip parents in your community to better understand mental health: what parents should know, when to get help, and how to support their own kids and those around them when they are struggling.

Tara's programs:

  • Range from an hour to a full-day conference
  • Can involve speakers from your community, including local parents, students and experts
