Mental Health Support For Kids Via Text Is Now Here!

An estimated 1.2 million children and youth in Canada are affected by mental illness.

This week on Global TV, I had my life coach, parenting contributor AND mom hat on for all our children. Today’s blog post is about sharing important news. And how lucky I am to have the platform both on television and online to share this crucial information. And finally, how fitting it is on Thanksgiving to be grateful for free mental health care accessible to our children at the tip of their fingers.

“Canadian youth can now access mental health support through a free bilingual texting service being rolled out across the country by Kids Help Phone. KIDS HELP PHONE is a charitable organization. Trained crisis volunteers at Kids Help Phone can now respond to young people seeking help by text, in addition to its existing phone and live chat services.

Mental Health Monday

I’ve got to be honest. I still cannot stop thinking about the deaths of entrepreneuress Kate Spade followed by the very gifted storyteller, Anthony Bourdain.

I keep asking myself, What is the bigger picture here?

I read this tweet on Twitter, “I just hate the fad vibe of all this. Depression and suicide was just as prevalent yesterday, last week and last year. Why does it always take some celebrity dying, before people really start acknowledging this stuff? Worst part is people will forget again within a week or so.”

And I answered, “I kind of feel the same. And the same goes for gun control– it takes a school shooting to shine the light, but then we forgot ’till the next one. But I am hopeful there are some good people out there fighting the good fight to create change.”

Anxiety in Kids, Teens and Us

Let’s consider this kind of a Wordless Wednesday. 😉

This past Monday night, I, with great guilt, missed an event that I go to yearly called Choices. It’s a beautiful gathering of 700 women who come together in one room to eat and drink and celebrate our community, and listen to an inspirational female speaker who has made some tough choices in her life. Hence, the name of the event Choices. I have chaired Choices in the past, and I fully support everything CJA related, but our school sent us this flyer a few weeks ago.

And I made the choice to put my family first Monday night.

Avoid burnout and reclaim your time, energy & balance!
