Navigating Mental Health ~ Guest, Dr. Jerry Weichman

Let's Talk Wellness - with Host, Mara James

Our adolescent years can be some of the most trying years of our lives.  It can also be some of the most trying years in the lives of our parents. It is also a time when mental health can be dramatically impacted. This week, Mara welcomes Dr. Jerry Weichman to share his insights and experiences helping equip teens and their families with tools for navigating mental health to make it through life’s challenges.

Dr. Jerry Weichman Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist and adolescent specialist as well as an author, speaker and parenting expert. His clinical practice at Hoag Hospital’s Neurosciences Institute in Newport Beach, California provides a window on contemporary teen and pre-teen behavior. He also founded The Weichman Clinic and its Teen Brain Program—the first and only truly comprehensive mental wellness program exclusively focused on children and adolescents.

Author of the teen survival guide, How to Deal, and noted media expert on teen issues, Dr. Weichman is focused on helping teens cope with parents, teachers, friends and academic pressure, communicating with them in a way they understand and relate to—helping them successfully navigate the dramas and pressures of adolescence. He has helped over 3000 teens over 17 years in private practice.
