Monmouth County, New Jersey: On Thursday, October 3, 2019, the Monmouth County
Schools Partnership for Wellness (MCSPW) will be hosting its first mental health and wellness
symposium at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, New Jersey. The event is from 6:00
PM-9:00 PM in the Student Life Center on the Lincroft Campus. This event is open to the public
but is specifically designed to provide parents/guardians of school-aged children with
information and resources available in Monmouth County to support child and adolescent
mental health and wellness.

The Monmouth County Schools Partnership for Wellness (MCSPW) is a volunteer consortium of
public school districts created to promote mental health and well-being for school community
members. Through collaboration with member districts, the Monmouth County Partnership for
Wellness strives to enhance awareness regarding mental health and well-being topics, cultivate
empathy for individuals who struggle with various types of mental health conditions, and engage
school community members in this important work. The goal of this partnership is to share rich,
appropriate resources in order to help communities develop timely, sustainable, and systemic
initiatives focused on creating stigma-free, inclusive and supportive environments. The
MCSPW understands that when individuals receive the care, support, and safety they deserve
along with access to sources of resiliency, people are empowered to lead more productive lives
as learners and as citizens.

This free event for parents/guardians is being sponsored by the Ocean First Foundation,
Hackensack Meridian Health, Monmouth County Education Association, Public Consulting
Group, Effective School Solutions and Monmouth County Freeholders.

The evening will begin with a keynote presentation by Alisha De Lorenzo, Interim Deputy
Director at Garden State Equality. Delorenzo, a licensed professional counselor trained in
integrative mental health model, specializes in working with LGBTQ individuals and their
families, trauma, grief, and mental illness. After the keynote presentation, attendees will be able
