Episode 2: Caregivers with Mental Health Challenges Kids These Days!

    • Education

When mom or dad - or any caregiver of children - struggles with mental health issues it will affect the whole family. On this program we discuss how caregivers can find support for an array of challenges - from long-term diagnoses like depression and bipolar to temporary concerns caused by abuse or difficult relationships. Plus, how open should caregivers be about their mental health issues, support for living with an alcoholic family member and how poverty + depression go hand-in-hand.

In-studio guests: Francine Harbour, executive director of the Anchorage affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and Virginia McCaslin, shelter manager at Abused Women’s Aid in Crisis, Inc. (AWAIC).
