Wellbeing neurological mental health begins in the home. Parents, teens, and children will feel empowered as they rethink the conversations surrounding mental health and seek the skills necessary to maintain balance.
Mental health concerns are showing up in parents, teens, and young children. Families are facing depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, violence, loss, and suicide ideation.
Solutions to these often sensitive topics can be individualized and delicate. All families, however, can benefit from increased emotional connections and appropriate physical touch.
Families can focus on connection through meaningful conversations unobstructed by electronic distractions. Rethink the conversations you share around the dinner table. Conversations should be times to express feelings and listen to one another.
It is also essential to hug your children. We recommend 8 hugs a day for 8 seconds each.
Families need to have meaningful conversations and experience appropriate touch.
