I’m so excited that we can hold Josselyn’s Spring Luncheon supporting Camp Neeka and Youth Services this year, after a 2-year hiatus! The pandemic not only put a damper on our social calendars, it wreaked havoc on our children’s mental health. December 7, 2021, the U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy issued an Advisory to highlight the urgent need to address the nation’s youth mental health crisis. At Josselyn, we are seeing it firsthand. “One-half of our new intakes are youth. The lack of socialization kids had over the past two years is having such a significant impact. Our kids are hurting,” states Jennifer Kronk, LCPC and Clinical Intake Supervisor.
So, it’s no wonder that we are looking forward to the Spring Luncheon which supports youth programming at Josselyn. In addition to the fabulous boutique shopping, delectable food, and the chance to see friends after a long winter, you will hear from a panel of three amazing women dedicated to youth mental health.
