* Free and open to high school and college-age families in Middlesex County and surrounding areas.
* The panel of college administrators and a former student who experienced mental health challenges in college will encourage transition age families to start
conversations about mental health before students leave home. It is prudent to understand privacy laws, what can be communicated by college administrations, and that colleges differ in supports. Students, parents, and guardians welcome.

* A question and answer session will follow the panel presentations.
