Parenting Refreshed - Mental Health

How can parents build safe environments for their children? How do we talk to our children about mental health? What are the effects of social media on the minds of children? Bassey Ikpi is a mental health advocate and author of the New York Times best-selling book ‘I’m Telling the Truth, But I’m Lying,’ which details her personal journey of a bipolar II diagnosis in 2004. She’s since made it her life’s work to help people understand that mental health is linked to everything we do in life. She’s joined by clinical psychologist Dr. Lisa Damour, who specializes in looking after the mental health of children, teenagers and families. Together they discuss the importance of building connection in families, toxic stress and why mental health isn’t just about feeling good.
