Helpful Sites and Materials

Is your teen moody, often sick, have troubles waking, disengaged, in need of positive summer experiences? We hope the following sites can answer some of your questions and offer helpful advice. Also, remember that Malvern has a social worker who is available to talk to your teen. If you are worried that your teen is depressed, having trouble socially, or may have an eating disorder, please call the school and ask for an appointment with the social worker. It is often easier for your teen to talk to someone outside the family.
