Bonjour! Hello! Shalom! Hola!
It’s been more than a few years since I last posted. There are many reasons for that: new job, less time, blog burnout…just to name a few.
However, percolating in the back of my mind was a desire to re-start this blog. And, the impetus which finally made me log-in again is two-fold:
- Out of the blue, a stranger reached out to me for help after Googling and coming up with my blog and my contact info. She was looking for local resources for her son and family based on her son’s mental health challenges. More on this soon.
- It’s Bell Let’s Talk Day here in Canada – and, from what I gather – now across the globe! #BellLetsTalk gets families, kids, parents, individuals and organizations talking openly and honestly about mental health. This is all in the hope of removing the stigma that still surrounds mental health and mental illness.
Anyway, it’s great to be back…there are so many topics pertaining to children & youth in regard to mental health and development. There will never be a dearth of content, news items or ideas.
I’d be happy to hear from you about your challenges or successes when it comes to your child’s or your own mental health and development.
Cheers! For all of you caught in the polar vortex today – keep dry and warm. Only 49 days until Spring arrives.
