Psychiatry for Kids Book
Growing up, Dr Jake never heard a doctor talk about mental health, especially their own. So when he began experiencing mental health issues in medical school, he suffered in silence due to the stigma that doctors don’t seek help.
Along his journey, he couldn’t escape the thought that he wished he had the chance to learn about mental health as a kid. It was time to change the narrative on mental illness for the future generation!
Introducing Psychiatry For Kids, a book written by doctors that teaches kids that their MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS!
Their goal was to write a book that empowers the next generation to learn about mental health and smash stigma. And because of your support, they are getting this book in front of kids everywhere! It has even broke into the best seller list in 2 categories (Science For Kids & Psychiatry). Psychiatry For Kids is available now HERE.
Rest in Peace Rosalynn Carter
First Lady Rosalynn Carter passed away on November 19th at the age of 96. During her time as First Lady, she utilized her platform to raise awareness about mental health issues and championed policies aimed at improving the lives of individuals affected by mental health conditions.
In 1977, she convened the first-ever White House Conference on Mental Health, shedding light on the importance of mental health care and addressing the stigma surrounding it. I cannot express how groundbreaking this was. In 1977, NOBODY was talking about mental health. It was extremely taboo. Mrs. Carter’s tireless advocacy also extended to her work with the Mental Health Task Force, where she played a crucial role in shaping mental health policies and ensuring that the needs of those with mental health conditions were prioritized.
Her compassionate and empathetic approach has inspired generations, fostering a broader understanding of mental health and reshaping the national conversation on this critical aspect of well-being.
May she rest in peace.
