Mental health expert Ben Brafman recently wrote about speaking with children about mental illness and mental health for Expert Beacon.
“As we see more and more news reports connecting mental health, depression, suicide, and violence, it can be easy for misconceptions to develop. This is especially true with children. By addressing these topics as a family, you can foster open communication and create a safe space where your family members can share their feelings. And when family members are able to share their feelings without being embarrassed, they are more apt to seek out treatment and get better.”
