This week is very important to me. I will be graduating from College this weekend, and celebrating Children's Mental Health Week. Please educate yourself on the various mental illnesses and disorders that may affect your child. Our children are a blessing!
Mental health is essential to overall health and well being.
Serious emotional and mental health disorders in children and youth are real and treatable.
Children and youth with mental health challenges and their families deserve access to services and supports that are family driven, youth guided and culturally appropriate.
Values of acceptance, dignity and social inclusion should be promoted throughout all communities for children, youth and families.
Family and youth voice is a valued asset in determining appropriate services and interventions.
