Children’s Health Council Panel Event
Moderated by Rosalie Whitlock, PhD


The Children’s Health Council (CHC) and Common Ground are joining forces to discuss learning and attention differences plus anxiety and depression. Seasoned experts from CHC will be on hand for this interactive conversation surrounding learning challenges, including ADHD, dyslexia, anxiety and depression—and the intersection of these. As a parent, how do you know when to seek help or not? Is it an actual problem, or just an outcome of a temporary situation? The panel will be moderated by Rosalie Whitlock, PhD, Executive Director of CHC. Panelists include Vivien Keil, PhD, Clinical Director and Neuropsychologist at CHC, Chris Harris, MEd, Chief Schools Officer at CHC and Vidya Krishnan, MD, Head of Adolescent Mental Health Services and Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist at CHC.
