Mental Health had a been an issue much discussed in the media, especially when it came to adults being affected by it. There are many times when this issue is overlooked when children are involved. How are they affected by this issue and how are they dealing with it?
Mommy’s Different Faces, a book well written for young children, was initiated with the idea in mind to make it easy for children to talk about how they are affected when a parent deals with mental health issues. As we all know, children of parents with mental health issues are often neglected by the mental health system and this book is going to change that. This book also allows children to express themselves while letting them know that it is not their fault and hopefully they see that it is okay to be happy when someone from their family is going through difficult time. The book also aims for children to receive the growing up that they deserve.
To learn more about this book and about this topic, my daughter and I are going to discuss this book in a open discussion on our radio show pie4play on Friday July 13, 2012 at 1:00 pm EST please join us on.
