"Beyond Worried: A Conversation about Teens and Anxiety"

Presented by: Dr. Thea Gallagher and Kate Brett

September 13, 2021
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Our presenters are co-hosts of Mind In View Podcast. Thea is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Licensed Professional Counselor. You will often see her interviewed, quoted, or otherwise featured in the media as a mental health expert. She is a Leo who almost never takes a break from overachieving, except to cuddle with her adorable toddler, Georgia, and take in some trashy TV or a Sixers game. Kate is a mental health advocate who was treated for a severe case of OCD eight years ago at the Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety at the University of Pennsylvania. Following her successful treatment, she started a support group at the center, which is where she met and got to know Thea—the group continues to meet monthly. As a Pisces, Kate has a deep empathy that is both a superpower and a curse; she believes it is her responsibility and her privilege to share her story in the hopes that one person might suffer less as a result.

​What Parent Up Is All About

Parenting is tough. It doesn’t get easier as children get older; every age presents a new challenge that we have to “level up” to meet. Parents are constantly learning and gaining new tools to better protect, teach, and guide their children.


That’s why we created Parent Up. We want to provide parents of tweens and teens a safe space to ask questions, to learn, and to network with other parents going through the same thing.

Parent Up: An Empowering Parenting Series, premiering in September 2020, will be presented virtually. Each session we will spotlight a new topic and host regional experts to help guide a 90-minute workshop to build knowledge and strengthen parenting skills.
