Free Community Workshop on Tools for Troubled Youth

October 16, 2018

For Immediate Release

Atlantic, IA –  Cass County Health System is hosting a free community workshop titled “Tools for Troubled Youth” on Wednesday, November 14th from 1 to 3:30 pm at the Cass County Community Center. The workshop will be presented by H. John Lehnhoff, PhD.

The workshop focuses specifically on youth and includes material for families and professionals. Suicide risk and self-harm will be covered during the workshop.

“Childhood years can be stormy at times under best of conditions, and not every problem is a mental disorder or a family dysfunction. This program helps untangle which is which, and offers tips and topics which can assist navigation of the pathways toward success and safety for youth,” said Dr. Lehnhoff.

Dr. Lehnhoff has practiced Clinical Psychology since receiving his doctorate from the University of Nebraska’s Clinical Psychology program in Lincoln. He has served as the Director of a community mental health center office, engaged in private practice, and was Clinical Director and Clinical Consultant at Omaha’s Richard Young Center (now Lasting Hope Hospital) for 16 years. Since 2003, he has served as a Clinical Psychologist Consultant for CHI Health Behavioral Services in Nebraska and Iowa.

Cass County Health System is inviting parents, families, teachers, school staff, law enforcement, community members, and more to attend this workshop. It is a free event, but reservations are requested. To reserve your spot, or if you have any questions, please call 712-250-8020.
