Project Description

We cannot change our child’s biology or genetics. Some children will develop mental health issues under the “best” of circumstances. We cannot necessarily predict whose predisposition might be triggered by life’s events.

FOCUS on increased awareness, early intervention and creating a nurturing and accepting environment with open communication. FOCUS on factors that may help buffer and protect children with harsh environments, it may create a situation that minimizes severity and affords early intervention is possible. FOCUS on what we all can do as parents within our own homes to faster sound mental health.
