Bring Them Closer: How to Save Our Children
The child and youth mental health crisis is at an all-time high. Anxiety and depression are skyrocketing. Over the last 10 years, there has been a 55% increase in the hospitalization of children and youth due to mental health concerns. Parents are at a loss to know how to deal with some of the issues our children are displaying.
Our kids are not ok.
In this seminar, Connie Jakab shares her own personal journey of how her son went from being hospitalized due to threats of suicide at the young age of eight, to now having overcome anxiety depression. “You never send the hurting away, you bring them closer,” but what does that LOOK LIKE? How do we create a connection with our children, so they lived healed and whole? How do we see our children free of anxiety, depression, and behavioural issues? In the seminar, you will leave with tools that can help your family overcome mental health challenges and prevent them from happening.
