Welcome to Healing Minds

Mental Health Care for Parents and Families

At Healing Minds, it is our goal that no family experiences helplessness and hopelessness while trying to raise a child struggling with mental health challenges.  We can look just about anywhere and see children struggling with their mental health now more than ever.  Nearly 40% of all adolescents ages 12-17 have reported persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness.
My battles with mental health began in high school.  It took more than twenty years before I was finally diagnosed and treated for bipolar disorder.  When reflecting on my struggles both of my parents say they regret not being able to help me sooner.  They wish they knew then what they know now about being an advocate for my mental health.
