Too often, we or someone we know, is in need of mental health services, but we just don’t know how or where to find help. Today, Kathy talks with Dr. Aixa Rodriguez-Mariana, mental health and autism advocate and Program Manger for Healthy Learners of Georgetown, South Carolina.
Aixa details two different ground-breaking community-base programs. Healthy Learners, which helps school age children to be healthy and thrive in their learning environments. And Youth Mental Health First Aid, a program that trains members of the community to identify 12-18 year olds who may need assistance with mental health or substance abuse issues.
PLUS! Kathy gives perspective on listening to your kids without judgement.
