On Children and Mental Illness: Let's Have These Conversations
I hope -- a word I don't use lightly in the light of this dark sadness -- that something good comes out of these convoluted but exceedingly necessary conversations. I also hope that we think before we speak, acting and reacting with compassion and thoughtfulness in both word and deed.
If you are a parent of a child with mental illness or an adult who has survived or lives with a mental health diagnosis, don't hesitate to share your thoughts with us. Leave links, comments, well-wishes and thoughts as to what this might mean for the future of how we treat individuals.
