Cultivating a Mentally Healthy Family

Description

Research increasingly shows that our culture is in the midst of a mental health epidemic, especially among children and youth — persistent feelings of sadness & hopelessness, anxiety and even suicidal thoughts. But Danny believes parents can offset these issues by routinely initiating conversations with your children to assess their mental and emotional well-being. Also, establishing a solid spiritual environment in your home will help improve mental health. Danny recommends parents use “feeling charts” and “thought bubbles” to help children see how their thoughts & emotions are connected, and how to choose more healthy/godly perspectives.
