So, Me… I am the parent of two children, one a ‘tween and one a teen. I hold university degrees from two recognized Canadian universities. For the past four years, I have been employed as the communications director for a large religious organization based in Toronto.
And… I am also a published writer who has researched and written about health, parenting, children, education and development as a freelance writer and paid staffer for over two decades. I was also a member of the parent advisory committee and a working sub-committee for Kinark Child & Family Services which services much of the GTA and south-eastern Ontario.
While I’ve always had a keen interest in all of these subject areas, after gaining personal experience with children’s mental health, this blog moved to the forefront.
About you: I’m planning to mix real-time information and studies on kids’ mental health with a philosophical and humorous bent. Make sense? Practical? I hope so. I’d love to have your comments and questions and form a tight community around this important issue as I move forward with this blog.
Please note: I am not a medical professional and that all content on this blog is of my own opinion or that of my guests/interviewees. As well, as I am Canadian, some of the material and resources will be geared to local and regional audiences but many of the topics I cover are universal.
