Episode 7: On Children’s Mental Health with Dr. Roseann

Our mental health affects the way we think, act and feel. Taking care of ourselves is just as important as having a healthy body. As a parent, you play an important role in your child’s mental health.  How we model that for them impacts the course of their health in the future. Changing the way we view and treat children’s mental health is the passion of today’s special guest, Dr. Roseann Capanna-Hodge. 

Dr. Roseann is a trailblazing Psychologist, Pediatric Mental Health Expert, and the founder and director of The Global Institute of Children’s Mental Health and Dr. Roseann and Associates. Her Connecticut-based center has helped thousands of children and adults reverse the most challenging conditions such as ADHD, Autism, anxiety, depression, concussion, learning disability, Lyme Disease, and PANS/PANDAS. 

Dr. Ro and I take a deep dive into examining the state of the mental health of our children, the difference between stress and anxiety, and some of the signs and symptoms that children show in their behaviors. Also, Dr. Ro  offers science-based non-medical holistic approaches to improve our health and the health of our kids

Listen in to hear more about : 

  • Parents need to be able to talk to their kids continually about mental health and to create a safe space for them. 
  • Teaching kids about boundaries also teaches them about their differences.
  • As parents, we need to model good behavior toward taking care of our bodies and our minds and having a healthy lifestyle.
