"I'm not smart enough, attractive enough. athletic, interesting or popular enough."

Cultural messages, often fueled by social media, feed teens' deepest insecurities and encourage them to believe that they "don't measure up." For both girls and boys, the impossible pursuit of perfection is identified as a big risk factor for anxiety, depression, eating disorders, drug and alcohol use, and a host of other issues.

At this free panel discussion, you will hear from experts, as well as a parent and young adult, all of whom will share their personal experience and insight in order to help parents reach their goal of helping their kids thrive and lead healthy, fulfilling lives.
