Free Memberships To Planet Fitness

Planet Fitness said its offering free memberships to teens this summer because exercise improves both physical and mental wellness.


Many of our children have been traumatized by the events of the last 20 months, some more than others, and some by additional events. Sheppard Pratt is offering help for parents to help their children. It is open to all, even though it names a specific school. This parenting group will provide information about the psychological impact of trauma and stress on you and your child’s brain and body. In this group, you will:

  • Learn about common emotional reactions to stress and trauma, and learn strategies to help reduce stress.
  • Learn new parenting strategies to help better support your child’s emotional well-being.
  • Get support from other parents with similar experiences.
