As part of our Health and Wellness Week at Bishop O’Dowd High School, Dr. Adrienne Candell ’83 will speak to the parent community about adolescent mental health in a presentation titled “Promoting Teen Wellness.”

Dr. Candell completed her undergraduate degree at UC Berkeley in 1987 and then her graduate degree from the California School of Professional Psychology in 1990. She began her career as a post-doctoral intern at Kaiser Permanente, Santa Rosa, and was subsequently hired on the Child/Family team in Union City where she has been working for over 22 years. Dr. Candell works with children from 4 to 18 years old treating clinical issues ranging from behavior problems in response to family stressors to ADHD, anxiety, and depression. Her work includes both individual and group treatment.

The youngest of four siblings, a mother of two daughters, and an O’Dowd alumna, we are pleased to have Dr. Candell as our evening speaker on Thursday, November 10, from 7-8:30 p.m., in the Annex. Please click this link to RSVP for this event if you plan to attend.
