Everyone Struggles Community Discussion

Everyone Struggles Community Discussion

Some of us struggle more than others, but we all struggle with something. It is not “us” vs. the “mentally ill.” It is everyone! Everyone has mental health. The more we accept struggling is something we all do, the more we will share our struggles and the more comfortable we will be in supporting others who are struggling. We believe starting with that we all struggle is the foundation to many other conversations. Our hope is that with greater conversation about our struggles, we will have to discuss suicide less.

We need your help normalizing mental health in our community. If you're tired of hiding behind your own mental health and/or you want to help change the way we talk and do mental health in our community, please join us for this community discussion.

Anxious Kids = Anxious Parents

Anxious Kids = Anxious Parents

Does your child suffer from excessive fears and worries, phobias, separation anxiety, panic attacks, social anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, or other anxiety related issues? Do you want to help your child push through his/her fears to become more resilient, independent, and happy? Anxious children often make anxious parents. While anxious parents can also make anxious children. Is your anxious child making you "walk on eggshells" and feel helpless? If so, this class is for you!

School Refusal: Parents

School Refusal: Parents

So let's get real for a second.  Every school morning you wake up hoping "this is going to be a good day." Your morning is wrecked when your kid wakes up and doesn't want to go to school.  These are the mornings you fear.   Parents of school refusal kids know what I am talking about.  Your day depends on how your kid wakes up.  If your kid is good, you're good.  If your kid is bad, you're stuck.  What do you do?  Do you try forcing your kid in the car, take away his/her iPad "forever," go to work and leave him/her at home.....  School Refusal parents, you need help! 

In this four week class, we help you step back, determine the reasons for your child's school refusal behaviors, and develop a step-by-step parenting plan to encourage your child to stay in school all day, everyday. 

Meltdowns

Meltdowns

Meltdowns is less about your child and more how you respond to your child. This class will help you not be afraid of saying the wrong thing or becoming frustrated and responding with anger. Instead of becoming emotionally reactive, this class will teach you how to remain calm and consistent during conflict. Modeling these parenting skills, you will help your child begin to think, feel, and act differently in distressing situations. You will feel better about being a parent, while allowing your child to better self regulate negative emotions. With the right approach you can have a loving relationship and help your child become a independent, caring and capable young adult.
