Introducing: FOCUS (For Our Children and US)

FOCUS is a metamorphosis of our previous speaker series, Coffee & Connect. LEAD Pittsburgh has partnered with Jewish Family and Community Services to present FOCUS for parents and caring adults to discuss youth mental health and our own.  LEAD will continue to invite speakers to engage with the community to educate and spread awareness of various mental health topics.  Mark your calendars for the next FOCUS event on December 12th at 7:00pm at Rodef Shalom Congregation.
