"Mental health is often the elephant in the room. While recent years have seen mental health awareness, research, and treatment progress to new levels, talking about mental health is as difficult as ever. There are many reasons mental illness can go unheard. In some cases, it can be difficult for a person who hasn’t experienced a mental illness to fully understand the effect a mental disorder can have. In other cases – and this is especially true for parents – it may be hard to acknowledge the fact that their child has a mental illness. In yet other cases, the stigma of mental illness can prevent a person from seeking the help they need."

"We don’t label a child with short hair as “short-haired,” because we expect the condition of having short-hair to change. Why is being a picky eater any different? Kids who don’t eat a wide range of foods can be going through a phase. This doesn’t mean that they are going to have permanent issues with food."

"A stigma against mental health issues stills runs deep not just in the United States, but all over the globe. As we discuss this topic more and more, though, it weakens. As a teen mental health program, we’re very sensitive to this subject and any information pertaining to it. Recently, we caught wind of two new projects that could help those with mental illnesses."

"According to a study by Pew Research Center, over 90 percent of teens go online daily and nearly 25 percent report being online “almost constantly.” While going online daily may not be an issue, “almost constantly” being online could have its complications. This type of behavior could even fit the bill for internet addiction. More often, though, it means that cyberbullying is easier and that our daughters are being exposed to various types of media throughout the day through technology."

"When your son or daughter enrolls in one of our programs, they’ll be brought into a focused, caring environment free from the distractions, triggers, and daily habits of home. Here they’ll be able to develop the skills necessary to respond to stressful situations in healthy ways, build confidence, and make meaningful changes

All FHW programs are immersive, residential environments where clients will join a community of others who understand their struggles. They’ll face challenges and receive real-time help in stressful situations as they build the skills needed to succeed long-term."

"We’re in the midst of a mental health struggle in America. Each candidate has spoken about the need for better mental health care in the US. Regardless of who you support in this upcoming election, it’s not hard to recognize the potential benefit of mentioning the importance of mental health in adolescence on a political platform.

Everyone is listening right now, which makes it the perfect time to speak about these important issues. PsychCentral recently published an article discussing a politician’s views on mental health and the importance of mental health in America."

An interesting article on trauma and mental health. 
By carefully tracking 5,000 people after they have experienced a traumatic event, a just-launched NIMH-funded study aims to provide a finely detailed map of the array of factors that play a role in the development of mental disorders that occur in the wake of trauma.

"When you're the parent of a disruptive child, life can seem impossible at times. Going to the grocery store or out to dinner can seem like scaling your very own Mount Everest. Quite often, parents don't know what to do or how to effectively handle a disruptive child, but there are certain methods and tactics that can make life a little easier for the whole family. Psychology Today recently published an article discussing ways a parent can effectively work with a disruptive child."

#DepressionScreeningDay When a person has depression, it interferes with daily life and normal functioning. It can cause pain for both the person with depression and those who care about him or her. Doctors call this condition “depressive disorder,” or “clinical depression.” It is a real illness. It is not a sign of a person’s weakness or a character flaw. You can’t “snap out of” clinical depression. Most people who experience depression need treatment to get better. Read our depression booklet for more info: http://bit.ly/2dj21EG
