HERE help redefined

If you or someone you love are experiencing social isolation, reach out. Let's change the way mental health is addressed.. Join us at HERE help redefined

"Teens who spent more time than average online and less time than average with friends in person were the most likely to be depressed"

"Even if online time doesn’t directly harm mental health, it could still adversely affect it in indirect ways, especially if time online crowds out time for other activities."


HERE help redefined

When kids don't feel that their true self is valued, they become adults who spend their whole life trying to be what others think they should be, or what they think others want them to be. If you relate, read on. We'll be here to help.



You deserve to take the space to process what's going on inside. Slow down. Choose to care for yourself!

So let's clear things up: There's no such thing as looking like you have an eating disorder- or looking like you're in recovery, for an eating disorder. Maybe not even being the thinnest in the room- what you see on the outside doesn't always translate to what is going on inside. 08/03/2017

The Enduring Pain of Childhood Verbal Abuse

It's never too late to work on YOU! Words uttered by parents damage in ways more literal than not.

It takes more than you think to actively listen. Read this quick list to help out with navigating emotion charged convos with friends family and loved ones!

Being there can be hard. Here's a useful list of tips.



Pay attention parents. It's easy to miss these signs when you aren't looking for them. Call Madeline today to get help for your teen. 05/06/2017

Simon Sinek on Millennials in the Workplace

This video is so worth the watch!!

We (the Millennials) are a generation marked by instant gratification, lacking social connections, checking our phones constantly, and filtering our lives so they look enviable to outsiders online.
