Child Mental Health & Community Resilience

Child Mental Health & Community Resilience

Dr. Vanessa LapointeLaurel Packing House

We are in the midst of a childhood mental health epidemic. Rising up to face this will take grit, collaboration, and targeted implementation of science-informed, heart-based practices. This may feel daunting but there is profound hope sitting all about us. Are you a “big person” – mom, dad, teacher, caregiver, auntie, uncle, neighbor – who is invested in the growing up of a child? Are you part of a community in which a child is growing? Then YOU ARE THE HOPE. Resilience abounds in the collective awakening of all of us – at the level of the family, the community, and the social system. Our kids can be okay, and you will lead the way.
