Some of our children are facing difficulties today due to certain traumas that they are enduring or have endured in the home, School, among friends or relatives. As a result, due to anger, depression, fear, or even frustration, some have resulted into talking back to teachers, fighting, isolation and even suicide.


Both Tyler and North Tyler Districts of the CME Church, Central Texas Ministry to Men along with NABJA and Alpha Phi Alpha will be conducting this forum to address these issues.
