HOW TO TALK TO YOUR KIDS (AND PARENT THEM) WHEN DEALING WITH MENTAL ILLNESS

On Sunday November 24th 2019, myself and my friend Marie-Julie went on air at 8:30am on #CFRAOttawa with #DahliaKurtz-The Goods, to chat about how to speak to your kids about your own mental illness.

I spoke on the perspective as a #Psychotherapist with a personal touch on some personal aspects. I also touched on the news this morning about obesity struggles in youth and what that truly means.
Marie-Julie shared her story as a paramedic , living with a mental health injury and as being a mom with a mental illness.
Wanted to thank 580 CFRA /@TheGoods  – Dahila Kurtz for having me in as her guest on her morning radio show.
Special Thanks to Marie-Julie in inviting me to sit beside her on that beautiful Sunday morning and sharing the journey around mental health.
