Given the intensity with which educators, parents and the media have focused on school security and bullying lately, a mental health needs conference in Rockland this weekend could be worth giving up your Saturday for.
Long Island University’s Rockland campus is sponsoring the free, all-day conference called Students in the Cross-Hairs.
State Sen. David Carlucci, chair of the state Senate’s committee on Mental Health, will lead the presentation, followed by Rockland-based psychologists and therapists.
The program runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information and to register, click here.
