One of the CMHNetwork's key collaborators for Children's Mental Health Awareness Week, Mary Jacksteit of Creating Community Solutions has written a heartfelt blog article on MomsRising:
- Finding ways for our kids to talk about mental illness and mental health is really important. I live near Washington DC and had to read last week about a local high school with 6 suicides in the past two years. Two of the kids were 15 years old. Imagining the pain of the parents of these kids almost made me sick. It does make me ache. I'm a mother of a now grown child who was very, very sick with bipolar disorder and anxiety as a teenager so this strikes very close to home.
