The heaviness of life and relationships can bring on challenges that we we are not equipped to deal with. They can lead to experiences of depression, anxiety, trauma, stress and overwhelm and can be damaging not only to ourselves, but to our children and families. These particular challenges impact our ability to connect with them; our mood sets the tone for the entire household; and it steals our joy from these precious years when our children are under our wing.
The great thing is, there is hope! Depression, anxiety and trauma are highly treatable and manageable. Even if you're not quite sure what you're experiencing but know something's off, please do not put yourself and your family through needless suffering any longer.
