This week, a Muslim teen in our community took his life. From 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, MCC is hosting Parallel Talks and Healing Circles for Parents and Teens.

We will hear from Dr. Rania Awaad, Dr. Hala Fattah, Shaykh Rami Nsour, and Ali Bishop (MSW). We will also have parallel teen and parent breakout support groups led by Khalil Center therapists.

Complimentary babysitting provided. We will not live stream or record the session. East Bay Parents of Teens especially: Please make a concerted effort to attend.

Please share this event on social media.

For those who are not able to attend, or would simply like to speak with someone confidentially and anonymously, the Khalil Center has a crisis helpline and an online chat option. Please share this information with your teens (and adults). The crisis helpline is (855) 5HELPKC or (855) 543- 5752 and the online chat option is available at khalilcenter.com
