Member Essentials – 4/14/20

April 12-16 was our originally scheduled GSWNY Camp Week and we are excited to still celebrate camp through virtual camp activities that you will see below.

Like other summer camp providers, GSWNY continues to closely monitor guidance from the CDC and New York State and will update you if any of our summer camp plans change. For now, please enjoy this week’s activities and read below for some other program and training opportunities.

Mental Health and Youth: Signs, Symptoms and Interventions Virtual Training Sessions – Thursday 4/23

Two Sessions: 11am – 1pm and 6pm – 8pm

Karl Shallowhorn, MA, CASAC has partnered with GSWNY in order to offer two training sessions to our staff and volunteers.  This training provides a basic overview of mental health, as well as information on disorders such as anxiety and depression. Participants will be able to identify the signs and symptoms as well as risk and protective factors associated with these conditions in relationship to youth 18 and under. Information will also be provided on resources available to assist those working with youth who may be encountering emerging mental health challenges.

Please note that each session has a maximum of 250 registrants, so space is limited.  Please register only if you are able to attend the live session; the sessions will be recorded and circulated via Member Essentials to all members.  GSWNY and Mr. Shallowhorn are also collaborating to provide a mental health session for girl members – please keep an eye out for more details to come!

Use the links below to register for either Thursday session.
Note: These are two identical sessions; please register for only one session.

Thursday Morning – 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Thursday Evening – 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
