On March 22nd, over three hundred guests came together at Sharon Heights Golf and Country Club for the Fifth Annual CHC Breakfast to continue the conversation about mental health and wellness for children, teens and young adults.
This year's thought-provoking gathering continued the dialogue begun at previous year's events, this time focusing on how those with LD and ADHD also struggle with anxiety. Event Chairs Catherine Harvey and Perri Guthrie welcomed guests and Dr. Ramsey Khasho opened the morning by providing statistics about how many have co-occurring learning and mental health issues. He pointed out that 1 in 5 young people in the US has a learning or attention difference. He also pointed out that 1 in 5 is the same statistic for anxiety. Following Dr. Khasho, speakers Dewey Rosetti and Dr. Stephen Hinshaw provided their very personal stories of struggle. Finally, an expert panel that included CHC's Dr. Lynette Hsu, addressed many of the excellent questions provided by the audience.
