My colleagues, Kim Hager and Maria Martinez, are interested in studying the experiences and barriers to accessing mental health services for families. For the purpose of our research, we intend to compare three groups – caregivers of children with one or more mental health conditions (including developmental diagnoses), caregivers of children with mental health conditions and common medical conditions, and caregivers of children with mental health conditions and rare diseases. Caregivers include biological parents, adoptive parents, foster parents, step-parents, guardians, and kinship homes with children under the age of 18. The survey is nationwide and open to families who live anywhere within the United States. The study is approved by the IRB and the survey is anonymous. Please help us by filling out the survey and/or sharing it.

The hope is the survey results will assist mental health providers in tailoring services to meet families’ needs. Thank you and we appreciate all your help!

Weekly Astrology Forecast, November 6-12: Endings and Beginnings

We are gifted will a full Moon lunar eclipse in Ta**us today, November 8th.

Eclipses are regarded as major astrological events; speaking to fated change, destiny and realignment of our lives, with lunar eclipses holding the essence of finalizations and the overall feelings of releasing and leaving something behind.

With the Moon‘s current position in Ta**us, we may be presented with a turning point and start to make decisions from a place of knowing, and are guided to see the beauty and magic in the world around us, and build up to a place of true worthiness and belonging.

We would encourage you to let life support you; let the healing of the Earth remind you that you are supported during this transitional time, and let your body remind you more deeply that you belong. Use this moment to allow yourself to release the old and step into the who you were always meant to me.

Weekly Astrology Forecast, November 6-12: Endings and Beginnings The full Moon lunar eclipse in Ta**us on November 8, 2022, reminds you to release what's no longer right so you can find your potential.

The biggest misconception of ADHD is that a person with ADHD has something "wrong" with them. This is just not the case. People with ADHD bring unique ideas, solutions, and perspectives to the work that they do. They are an asset to your team.

10/26/2022

According to the CDC, about 9.8% of kids have been diagnosed with ADHD. 6 out of 10 of those kids have been diagnosed with an additional mental, emotional, or behavioral disorder.

ADHD is more than not being able to sit still. It's time to learn more. https://cdc.gov/adhd

As people age, they often find themselves spending more time alone. Increased loneliness, social isolation, and poor health are strongly linked to an increased risk of depression and even su***de among older adults. Reach out. Make connections. Make a difference.

When someone is struggling, being able to just listen is often the most helpful thing that we can do because it helps them to feel seen, cared for, and valued.

We see your courage every day. Each day you get up and try again. We admire the way that you keep going, even when you don't know if you have the strength to do so.

Studies show that asking at-risk individuals if they are suicidal does not increase su***des or suicidal thoughts. It WILL give you the information needed to assist the individual in seeking help.

If you believe a person is in immediate danger of su***de, stay with them, keep them safe, and call 911 or take them to the nearest emergency room.

Absolutely! 🌱

Today is Grief Awareness Day. But those living with grief are always aware of it. The love, the memories, the laughter, the pain, the sorrow, the emptiness, the loss are felt every day. Today is a day to remember that you are not alone and you are allowed all of your feelings. We are sending everyone lots of love today.

Restraint Collapse is So Real 08/26/2022

Restraint Collapse is So Real

With this first week of school for most coming to an end, you may be with the majority of parents, especially elementary, in trying to manage and deal with ‘restraint collapse’.

This is when children “will act younger than their age and whine, cry, throw tantrums, act needy, moody and generally have a meltdown.” Their emotions are rarely about what is happening in the moment, but more about letting go of the day.

The good news is that restraint collapse lessens as kids get older; around age 12, as they develop more tools for emotional resiliency, so hang in there! ❤️

Restraint Collapse is So Real How I manage it with my kids and how I am thinking about it for myself.
