ParentalMental Speaks at the Children’s Mental Health Ontario 2021 Conference

Parental Mental Health – Facilitating Positive Interdependence

Parental mental health is often an unintentionally overlooked element of children’s mental health. Facilitating a safe space for parents to explore their own mental health, and to seek help if they need it, can have a positive impact on their child. Leanne created ParentalMental.com to support this idea.

This 90-minute session will present the lived experience perspective on pursuing treatment for a parent’s mental health concerns and for a child with an ADHD diagnosis. The session will provide insights on how a parent with a late-life diagnosis parents a child with ADHD while managing both of their health conditions. The session will also touch on the notion that parents who seek help, at any age, with undiagnosed mental health concerns, can benefit the entire family.
