Virtual Speaking Event: What Parents Should Know About Mental Health Treatment of Minors and Young Adults – A Senior Capstone Project


TSS senior Noa Nissim Kobliner will be presenting her senior capstone project in conjunction with Ashleigh Diserio, an expert in human behavior and analysis. It is no secret that the pandemic has had a profound impact on the mental health of many Americans. Studies show increasing numbers of tweens and teens are struggling to manage their mental health.  Consequently,  more youth are reaching out to seek mental health assistance. This talk will educate parents and guardians on the available mental health services for minors and young adults so they can be good advocates for youth seeking assistance. Participants will learn about mental health treatments, who provides them, and gain knowledge about parents/guardians’ rights when looking into treatments for youth.  Participants will leave with a better understanding of mental health and what questions to ask treatment providers when looking into various mental health treatments for their adolescent. 


Ashleigh Diserio studies human behavior. Her 14 years of experience applying psychological theories and principles in various investigative, educational, and national security settings allows her to help individuals and organizations understand an individual’s mindset, motivations, behaviors, and intentions. Her understanding of predicting and countering behaviors of individuals who display undesirable, threatening, or potentially dangerous character traits enables her to counsel and collaborate with organizations to set and achieve the highest standards in threat and violence risk assessment, investigations, and other areas.  Ashleigh has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology from Bethany College and a Master’s Degree in Forensic Psychology from Marymount University. She is also a certified life coach from The Institute for Life Coach Training and provides life coaching to youth and adults through her Resilient Souls life coaching program.
