No, this isn’t a blog about that fabulous song by Diddy though I do love the tune. However, it is a “coming home” of sorts. The focus of this blog is – yup, you got it – children and mental health. Mental health is a subject that’s intrigued me for so long and, with the onset of blogging, I’m provided the opportunity to explore the subject in more detail and share ideas.
So, welcome one and all. Grab a coffee and pull up a chair. There’s more about me and my professional writing background on the About page. But, what will this blog focus on specifically? The plan is to home in on a wide range of mental health issues pertinent to professionals, children and families, including:
- ADHD or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
- obsessive-compulsive disorder
Beyond common mental health issues and what’s new in this field, I plan address subjects in an off-beat way; perhaps look at the connections between mental health and music or children and poetry and philosophy. -So, it’s not just the science behind the diagnosis but exploring the many facets that make up who we are and why we are the way we are.
Once again, welcome. I hope the coffee was tasty and the text satisfying.What are your thoughts and ideas on the subject of kids and mental health? I’ve got reams of ideas but am open to hearing about yours, too.
