Please join us Monday, Nov. 30, at 7 p.m., at the Fine Arts Center for a free community event featuring Nancy Colflesh, Ph.D. She will discuss ways in which people can successfully navigate all kinds of changes in their lives. Following her presentation, there will be smaller breakout sessions covering topics such as: grief and death; divorce and family changes; health challenges; peer breakups and friendships; and empty nesters and identity changes. The event is organized by the Forest Hills Public Schools parent group for the Awareness, Acceptance and Advocacy of Mental Health, and is underwritten by a grant from the Forest Hills Public Schools Foundation.
