The YMCA, in partnership with the Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation and PartnerMD, will host a free event May 2 to help parents learn how to deal with teen mental health issues. “When the Band-Aid Doesn’t Fix It: A Mom’s Perspective on Raising a Child Who Struggles” will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Shady Grove Family YMCA,11255 Nuckols Road. The event will focus on education, awareness, and understanding the issues facing teens today.

Grace Gallagher, Executive Director of the Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation, will share her personal experience of her daughter Cameron’s personal struggles with depression and anxiety.

Cameron passed away in 2014 after completing the Shamrock Half Marathon. In her memory, her family created the Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation, whose mission is to change the current mindset of society about mental illness, and to erase the stigma associated with it. Experts from PartnerMD will discuss the resources available to parents in the Greater Richmond community. Local professionals in the field of teen mental health will also be available to answer questions parents may have.
