The Child Mind Institute hosted its annual spring luncheon on Monday to discuss the topic of The Teenage Brain: All Revved Up, Not Sure Where to Go. Appropriately named, the event included a panel with presenters Harold S. Koplewicz, M.D., (psychiatrist and founding president of Child Mind Institute) and Frances E. Jensen, M.D. (author, professor and chair of the Department of Neurology, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania), who shared their insight and expertise while Ali Wentworth (actress, comedian, author and producer) moderated.

The teenage brain is a “puzzle awaiting completion” Dr. Jensen says, as they are primed for high, complex levels of learning but not fully developed yet as adult brains. Understanding the process of how this all works is beneficial for teens and parents of teens, in helping them learn the best way to respond to challenges and mental health concerns.

The evening brought out a round of notable attendees including Jessica Seinfeld, Brooke Garber Neidich and Zibby Schwarzman. Co-chairs of the event included Christine Mack, Valerie Mnuchin, and Debra G. Perelman.
