Why are we seeing more children with depression, ADHD, & anxiety? What the heck do we do about it? The next two episodes tackle these issues. If you have a family or are starting one, you NEED to tune in. Dr. Matheson has sound, practical advice to help our kids to be more resilient.
Take home points:
1. Legislators/Administrators: Early interventions works! We need the infrastructure and policy to make it happen.
2. Clinicians: Intervene early to have the most impact.
3. General public: Let go of the reigns. Kids sense our anxiety. We got to let kids be kids! Remember kids WANT to be good.
