We know that LGBTQIA+ youth are at greater risk for suicide, depression, and self harm. What can we do to combat this? This Exceptional Parenting Program will feature a panel discussion on supports for LGBTQIA+ youth. Panelists include Sara Hoskins from the ASIJ Queer Equality Alliance, Arunansu Patra of the YIS LGBTQ Human Rights Group, Michael Clemons of NPO YouMeWe, and Ron Fast of Tokyo Well-Being. We will be talking about what supports exist, some of the challenges facing LGBTQIA+ youth, and resources and strategies for overcoming these challenges.

The EPP (Exceptional Parenting Program) 

TELL Exceptional Parenting ProgramI have attended quite a few of the EPP programs over the past years and have found each one to be valuable to maintain some sanity in our crazy house!  The Exceptional Parenting Program, which runs from October to May, features six or more presentations by English speakers from a variety of disciplines and takes place at in Minami Aoyama, Tokyo.   The workshops are centered on providing insightful, practical information to increase awareness and understanding of various issues associated with raising and educating a child with learning differences/diverse needs. The workshops are free of charge, but donations are highly appreciated to support future EPP workshops.
