An amazing post from writer Ryan Mesick that we think all great role models, parents, and especially Mothers will appreciate - albeit a week after Mother's Day.  "At that point I realized that which I had already known: that not many women could do what my mother did.  Not only was the task of raising four young and active boys as a single mother met by her without complaint, but likewise the life lessons she enacted came without a soapbox."

Our writer reflections on the benefits of strong parenting, positive role models, and an amazing mother, albeit a week after Mother's Day.  For, as he states, he has always found Mother's Day "an indolent get out of jail free card for those who don't show daily appreciation. If one needs a designated day of grand gestures and materialism to measure how much they love someone, then one is doing it wrong." #rolemodels   #parenting

We are open for discussion and collaboration in all things mental health!

One of our writers discussed the importance of "unplugging" in the Digital Age to relieve #stress. "Our brains are adjusting to 140 characters, and making connections accordingly (...) Taking part in the advances of our culture while holding onto the intangible values and allures that make us human is ripe for the picking, just so long as you don't download a fruit picking application."
