About The Blog

My Truth

First, I am not a therapist, psychiatrist or psychologist. Although I have gone to my share of them! What I am is a mom with a 16 year old daughter that deals with depression, anxiety and self-harming behaviors. My daughter Kyra and I have been working through her mental health issues for several years now and what I have noticed is that even though the mental health discussion is becoming more mainstream there still seems to be a residual "code of silence" surrounding teenage mental health. I created this blog to be a safe place for parents and teens to share information, questions, concerns and victories as a community of mental health survivors.
