What is the difference between Mental Health and Mental Illness?
Within, the world of youth mental health there is a tremendous push towards changing and improving access to mental health services. To be clear, I believe getting help for kids and their families is of utmost importance. To do this, we need improved services and prevention models that include a radical improvement of k-12 psycho-education.
One of many contributors to the current youth mental health epidemic is OUR inability as adults to deal with OUR difficult thoughts and emotions. Because of this, we often lie to ourselves and our kids.
