On December 14, 2012, the day Adam Lanza killed his mother, then walked into a school in Newtown, Connecticut and shot 20 first graders and 6 brave educators, I shared my struggles as a parent of a child with mental illness on my anonymous blog, the Anarchist Soccer Mom. The post went viral, and it caused quite a bit of controversy. In that post, I wrote, "It's time to talk about mental illness." Why? One in five children has a serious and debilitating mental disorder. More than 4600 children and young people die each year from completing suicide. And yet across America, parents are struggling to find solutions for their hurting children. Too often, the only solution is jail: between 50 and 75 percent of children in juvenile detention have mental illness, often untreated, at a tremendous cost to taxpayers and society. Parents feel isolated, alone, and afraid. Pervasive stigma prevents us from even talking about our needs. One mother told me, "I know this sounds terrible, but I wish my daughter had cancer instead of a mental disorder. At least then I could talk about it." It's time to talk. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

Big Think and the Mental Health Channel are proud to launch Big Thinkers on Mental Health, a new series dedicated to open discussion of anxiety, depression, and the many other psychological disorders that affect millions worldwide. The Adverse Childhood Study found that survivors of childhood trauma are up to 5000% more likely to attempt suicide, have eating disorders or become IV drug users. Dr. Vincent Felitti, the study's founder, details this remarkable and powerful connection.

In 1985, I first became interested in developmental life experiences in early childhood really by accident. In the major obesity program we were running, a young woman came into the program. She was twenty-eight years old, and weighed 408 pounds, and asked us if we could help her with her problem. And in fifty-one weeks, we took her from 408 to 132. And we thought, well my god, we’ve got this problem licked. This is going to be a world-famous department here! She maintained her weight at 132 for several weeks, and then in one three-week period regained 37 pounds in three weeks, which I had not previously conceived as being physiologically possible. That was triggered by being sexually propositioned at work by a much older man, as she described him. And in short order, she was back over 400 pounds faster than she had lost the weight. I remember asking her why the extreme response. After initially claiming not to have any understanding of why the extreme response, ultimately she told me of a lengthy incest history with her grandfather, from age 10 to age 21. Ultimately it turned out that fifty-five percent of the people in our obesity program acknowledged a history of childhood sexual abuse. I mean, that obviously is not the only issue going on, but it was where we began. And as we went down that trail, then we discovered other forms of abuse, also growing up in massively dysfunctional households, et cetera. The ACE study was really designed to see whether these things existed at all in the general population, and if so, how did they play out over time? Read Full Transcript Here: (http://goo.gl/F7vNgV).

Dr. Mariette Chartier, lead author and Professor of Community Health Sciences, Max Rady College of Medicine, Rady Faculty of Health Sciences discusses the report "The Mental Health of Manitoba's Children". Canadian studies suggest that 1 in 7 children experience mental disorders at any given time, however less than a third of these children receive the clinical treatment services they require. This project examines the diagnostic prevalence of mental disorders in children according to diagnostic categories such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), schizophrenia, mood and anxiety disorders and substance use disorder. Use of services for mental disorders, including hospitalizations, physician visits, justice system involvement, and child and family services for those identified with mental disorders are examined, as well as the relationship between mental health and educational outcomes. In addition, the project team is exploring factors that contribute to the development of mental disorders in children. Results from this report will inform ongoing work by the Healthy Child Manitoba Strategy, the Provincial Mental Health Strategy (Rising to the Challenge) and the implementation of a Child and Youth Mental Health Strategy. Authors: Mariette Chartier, Marni Brownell, Leonard MacWilliam, Jeff Valdivia, Yao Nie, Okechukwu Ekuma, Charles Burchill, Milton Hu, Leanne Rajotte, and Christina Kulbaba.

Stress in the environment is every bit as dangerous to the brain as chemical toxins, especially for children. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that children exposed to traumatic events are more likely to develop mental and behavioral health problems like depression and addiction. A nurturing, consistent relationship can actually prevent this brain damage. That's what Child First is all about. An innovative, home-based, early childhood intervention model, Child First approaches each child holistically, fostering a system of care that works to decrease the incidence of serious emotional disturbance, developmental and learning problems, and abuse and neglect among the most vulnerable young children and families.Learn more about this innovative program: http://www.rwjf.org/en/grants/grantees/childfirst.html With the help of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Child First has grown from a community-based program to an established program in the state of Connecticut. And this innovative model is spreading across the country. Learn how to bring this program to your community: http://rwjf.org/en/about-rwjf/program-areas/vulnerable-populations/strategy.html Key Results • Children receiving services from Child First: - Were 68 percent less likely to have language problems - Were 42 percent less likely to have aggressive and defiant behaviors • Child First mothers had 64 percent lower levels of depression and/or mental health problems than mothers receiving usual care.

Trauma symptoms are often misdiagnosed. Some of these are depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. www.HelpFrorTrauma.com The Instinctual Trauma Response Model is an outcome and evidence-based model developed after 30 years of work in hospitals and clinics by Dr. Louis Tinnin and Dr. Linda Gantt. It is successful in dramatically reducing and most often eradicating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD, and the many symptoms PTSD can have such as depression, bipolar depression, ADHD, ADD, fears, panic and anxiety. The ITR Model was conceived and used in hospitals dealing with mental disorders and trauma treatment clinics for over 30 years. The Instinctual Trauma Response Model was developed by the innovative psychiatrist Dr. Louis Tinnin, and his wife, Linda Gantt, PhD., an acclaimed art therapist. They both had a passion to help people suffering from the effects of adverse events in their lives, including preverbal trauma and the PTSD symptoms caused by them. An adult who experienced traumatic birth or an incident as a toddler can report life-long symptoms of anxiety with nervousness and spells of terror or panic. They may have temper outbursts and urges to smash or break things. They have depression, self-consciousness, distrust of others, and a high vulnerability to stress. Do I have trauma? Did you ever experience abuse in any form such as: Sexual abuse Verbal Abuse Emotional Abuse Religious Abuse Domestic Abuse Sibling Abuse Neglect as a child Bullying Were you adopted? Did your parents go through a divorce when you were a child? Have you survived a natural disaster or a car accident? Did you have surgery or a medical procedure as a child or adolescent? Does fear hold you back when you try to do something new? Do you feel like the other shoe is going to drop just when things are going well? Do you have a hard time being in a stable relationship? Do you struggle to excel in your career? Do upsetting memories of a childhood event pop into your mind unexpectedly? Does a voice in your head hold you back when you try to do something positive for yourself? Do you have issues around food? Do you drink more than you know you should? Are you always irritable or in a constantly negative mood? Do you feel disconnected from others? Do you have sleep issues or nightmares? Or did you ever have invasive medical procedures or surgery? Whether a person experiences combat, a car accident, physical assault, a natural disaster, or a medical trauma, they could have PTSD. Do you ever feel like this? I need help. Something is stopping me. Do you ever ask your self: Whats wrong with me? I’m depressed. Whats wrong with me I’m overreacting? Whats wrong with me emotionally? I wonder whats wrong with me? I don’t know whats wrong with me? I’m so irritable whats wrong with me? What is stopping me? What is stopping me from being happy? What is stopping me from achieving my goals?

During a rally hosted by Josh Sigurdson regarding the horrific issues Manitobans face when it comes to CFS and the NDP's attack on the family structure, Cora Morgan who is the First Nations Child Advocate for CFS spoke about the many problems with the CFS system including the number of children growing up and ending up homeless which is over half of all children in care, the majority of missing and murdered coming from CFS care, the stat of 90% of all children in care being First Nations and many other disturbing trends. During this conversation, Cora Morgan was asked about CFS falsely labeling children as mentally ill to bring in more money. When asked about CFS profiting from medicated children, Cora said, "They do. If you take a healthy child and put them into this system, they're going to want to place them at a higher level so that way there's more money invested in that child. But you can drive that cost up by the amount of medication you give that child." We've covered this information in the past but it's very important that it's put into context. This should disturb anyone that cares about the well being of children. This is cronyism and is really quite sadistic. As the election nears an end, will people still vote for the NDP, a party that supports and implements these kinds of horrific programs for profit? Children are not government property!

Today you will learn first hand, through the stories and tragedies of both Sharon Richardson and Lajan Collins, that the suffering of those with mental illness, is not just about those who are diagnosed, but also those that love them beyond reason. I can tell you what it is like to parent someone who suffers, but what is it like growing up with a parent that suffers?

http://www.commandthecourtroom.com The mental health of a parent can affect a child custody decision so it is very important to take steps to evaluate and make an accurate assessment.* Please read the Disclaimer below: *This video recording is for educational purposes only and should not be considered as the rendering of legal advice. The viewing of this recording does not create an attorney-client relationship. An attorney-client relationship is only formed when you have signed an engagement agreement. We cannot guarantee results. Past results do not guarantee future results. Consult with a licensed attorney for information regarding the specifics of your case. Today I want to talk about mental health and how it comes into play in your child custody case, whether it be parenting time or decision making regarding joint or sole custody. One of the factors a judge looks at when making a decision about the best interests of the child is the mental, emotional and physical health of all of the parties including both parents and the child. What I see in these cases is either one parent blowing the condition way out of proportion or not taking the mental health condition seriously as they should. This is hard to gauge if you are not a mental health professional. Even I as an attorney has trouble determining whether the parent has a mental condition or not. The best way to provide evidence of a mental health issue is to get a hold of the medical records of the person who may be suffering from this. Depending on what state you live in, there are various ways to obtain these records. The way I get the documents is to ask the other party to sign a medical release (HIPAA). Then I send those releases out to the doctors. Once I receive the records I look for any mental health issues or any medications they may be using to treat this. I also look at the length of time the person has been treated. I also look at the proposed treatment and if the person is following it. Since as a custody lawyer, I am not in a position to make an evaluation of the diagnosis in some situations you may have to hire a nurse practicenor or even a doctor or psychiatrist to testify at the custody hearing and to make an assessment of the condition. Although it does cost money to hire a mental health evaluator your custody court case, it is very important for the sake of the child and when the judges decide on your custody case it be in the best interest of the child.

https://childrenscolorado.org/stigma It’s not always easy to tell others that your child has challenges managing their thoughts or feelings. And it might not be easy for your child to express that either. Even though it is normal for people of any age to experience these challenges, our culture has told us we need to fear them. In this video, we ask why it is this way and what we can all do to give each other the support we need to get help.

http://www.cincinnatichildrens.org/psychiatry Shanda Smith knows what it’s like to experience a mental health crisis. Her family has lived it. Her daughter, Alyssa, has battled depression, anxiety and anger issues since she was 3. The family sought out doctors, and counselors to help before getting treatment at Cincinnati Children’s. The Smiths are not alone in their struggle. Mental health is one of the largest pediatric challenges facing the Greater Cincinnati community, touching roughly 20 percent of the population. Cincinnati Children’s has tried to meet those needs – in part through a 35,000-square-foot expansion at the College Hill Campus to serve more than 2,100 psychiatric patients each year. Meeting the needs of patients like Alyssa is part of Cincinnati Children’s mission. We know that behavioral health issues are so often tied in with the physical illnesses we treat. We are here to work with families and advocate for your needs. It’s all about changing the outcome together. Learn more about our mental health services at cincinnatichildrens.org/psychiatry

Big Think and the Mental Health Channel are proud to launch Big Thinkers on Mental Health, a new series dedicated to open discussion of anxiety, depression, and the many other psychological disorders that affect millions worldwide. Learn more at the Mental Health Channel: http://mentalhealthchannel.tv/show/big-thinkers-on-mental-health In the fourth video in the series, Dr. Victor Schwartz of The Jed Foundation runs through some staggering stats about mental health in college. University students are, in general, a very stressed-out demographic. Factor in things like alcohol abuse, homesickness, and elevated risk for sexual assault, and you've got quite the cocktail for mental health issues. Does the typical college student, asks Schwartz, really understand the sort of care options available to her? One of the major challenges of college mental health care is encouraging students to step forward when they are depressed or suffering from anxiety. It's in everyone's best interest for mental health to be a big priority. The trick is to remove the stigma from the process.

Colleges do it because it’s the right thing to do and because it’s prudent. I think there’s a growing understanding and it’s something that we at the Jed Foundation are trying to really make schools aware of that it’s in the school’s and the student’s best interest to provide a really broad array of support services to their students. The more we can keep students on track doing well in school and getting to the graduation line, the better it is for everybody involved. One of the big challenges in providing services is that most schools actually provide these services for free. It’s very, very rare for colleges to charge for the mental health services. Of course students and their parents would say they’re charging plenty already. But services are usually provided without extra cost to the students and that creates a real challenge for the schools to balance the cost and benefit of the range of services they’re providing. The other challenge is that in the 18 to 25 year old age group many people have had either no experience with health or mental health care. People who’ve had experiences as teens often haven’t had the greatest experiences because they’ve often actually been forced into treatment or, you know, sent to treatment outside of their own will. So getting the people who need treatment into the system is often a very, very significant challenge. And then it’s a challenge for the system to have the resources, the personnel, the number of clinicians and visits in order to take care of everybody who needs care. The one thing we do know is that college students drink more alcohol than their non-college attending 18 to 25 year old cohort. So clearly we know that college is a risk factor for increase in alcohol use. And there are a series of problems that are coincident with that and that does present a serious concern. We know about a third of college students will report an alcohol binge every two weeks or so. So that’s a really significant number and we know that there are a lot of negative consequences associated with especially the high intensity drinking that sometimes goes on. We know that there are fights that occur. Obviously car accidents that occur. And unfortunately there’s been tremendous concern recently about the increasing awareness around sexual assaults on campus and we know about two percent of students who drink report that they’ve had a nonconsensual sexual contact in the context of drinking. And while that sounds like a low percentage the denominator of that fraction there are about 20 million students in college and about 70 percent of them drink. Two percent of 70 percent of 20 million is something in the range of 300,000 incidents of nonconsensual sexual contact. That’s actually a staggering number.

As a person struggling with multiple mental disorders, Paige Freeman vividly illustrates the consequences they have on everyday life, the stigmas society places on mental illness, and speaks out about her own experience for the first time. Paige moved from Brooklyn to Singapore in 2006, where she has attended the Singapore American School for the past nine years. She has not yet uncovered her ultimate goal in life, and is just fine with that. However, she does have some problems she’d like to fix along the way. She enjoys writing, making art, and singing -- in 2013, she sang a solo at the Esplanade Concert Hall. Paige is partial to rainy afternoons and listening to good music.

Do you let your child play with your cell phone or your tablet? There are many reasons why children under the age of 12 shouldn’t use these devices. Technology has developed and enhanced our lives for many years, but do you know what these handheld devices are doing to your children? Children should have restricted access to handheld devices such as cellphones, tablets, etc. to avoid developmental consequences. Research indicates that technology is harming our children, yet many adults continue to support unrestricted use. These devices have increased infant, toddler, and child access and immersion into a viral world devoid of critical factors for development, behavior, and learning. Reasons to keep your children away from handheld devices 1. Rapid brain growth: When a child is between 0-2 years, the brain triples in size and continues in a state of rapid development to 21 years of age. Early brain development is determined by environmental stimuli or lack thereof. Stimulation for a developing brain caused by overexposure to technologies has shown to be associated with executive functioning and attention deficit, cognitive delays, impaired learning, increased impulsivity and decreased ability to self-regulate. 2. Delayed development: The technology we have come to know restricts movement for children, which can result in delayed development. 1 in 3 children enters school with being developmentally delayed, negatively impacting literacy and academic achievement. Movement enhances attention and learning abilities. When technology is used under the age of 12 it is detrimental to a child’s development and learning. 3. Epidemic obesity: Children who are allowed to have devices in their rooms have 30 percent increased risk of obesity. 1 in 4 Canadian children and 1 in 3 U.S. children are obese. 30 percent of children who are obese will develop diabetes, and obese individuals have a high risk of early stroke and heart attack, which shortens life expectancy. 21st century children may be the first generation to not outlive their parents. 4. Sleep deprivation: 60 percent of parents don’t watch their children’s technology usage, and 75 percent of children are allowed to use technology in their bedrooms. Those 75 percent of children aged 9-10 are sleep deprived to the extent that their grades are impacted. 5. Mental illness: When technology is overused it is implicated as a causal factor in rising rates of child depression, anxiety, attachment disorder, attention deficit, autism, bipolar disorder, psychosis, and problematic child behavior. 1 in 6 Canadian children has diagnosed mental illnesses. 6. Aggression: Violent media can cause child aggression. When young children are exposed to incidences of physical and sexual violence like “grand theft auto V” it portrays sex, murder, rape, torture, and mutilation, as do many TV shows. The U.S. categorized media violence as a Public Health Risk due to casual impact on child aggression. The media reports increased use of restraints and seclusion rooms with children who exhibit uncontrolled aggression. 7. Digital dementia: When high-speed media content can contribute to attention deficit, as well as decreased concentration and memory, due to the brain pruning neuronal tracks to the frontal cortex. Children who can’t pay attention, can’t learn. 8. Addictions: When parents add more technology, they’re detaching from their children. When parental attachment is absent, detached children can attach to devices, which can result in addiction. 1 in 11 children aged 8-18 are addicted to technology. 9. Radiation emission: May of 2011, the WHO classified cell phones as a category 2B risk (possible carcinogen) because of radiation emission. In 2013, Dr. Anthony Miller from the University of Toronto’s School of Public Health recommended that based on research, radio frequency exposure should be reclassified as 2A (probably carcinogen), not 2B. 10. Unsustainable: The way children are raised and educated in a technological world is no longer sustainable. What has the potential to teach practical life skills rather has become a viral sinkhole of aforementioned hazards. The future is bleak for children who overuse technology. 11. Eye strain: It is more common for children to suffer from eye strain after staring at screens for hours. This can also be called computer vision syndrome. You can avoid children with eye problems by limiting screen time to 30 minutes at a time.

Professor Julia Rucklidge, Psychology, College of Science Despite the advent of medications and other therapies over the last 50 years, the rates of mental illness have been on the rise rather than a decline. Over the last decade, scientists have been uncovering an uncomfortable truth: What we eat is affecting our mental health. In this talk, Prof Rucklidge will discuss the data that shows an alarming picture of food choices serving as risk factors to all kinds of psychiatric problems; she will then introduce the recent paradigm shift of using nutrients to treat these challenges, reviewing the evidence to date. The talk will challenge our current treatment regime for mental disorders and suggest one alternative course of action.

http://DonovanBigelow.com A mother’s mental illness can affect a child’s development in both the prenatal and postnatal stages. Child development is the most personal thing. And most of you listening to this will either soon have children or have them already. You might have very strong feelings about how to raise children. I do not know anyone that does not have strong feelings and I am going to rely as best I can on what science has shown my field over the last hundred years to be the developmental needs of the children. The mother’s relationship to the child is the most important thing for the child’s development. 50 years have increasingly brought us back to the importance of a mother’s relationship to her child in the earliest periods of postnatal. However, there is research that shows the potentially profound impacts prenatally on the fetus. It is in this context we are going to cover when mother has experienced a painful childhood which has caused mental illness in adulthood and how it can potentially affect the development of the child. Also we will go over the six things that research has shown as the essential needs of a child. Everyone knows someone with a mental illness. We must try in a long process to discover our own personal truth and though it will cause us pain it will eventually give us a new sphere of freedom. The damage done to us during our childhood cannot be undone. Since we cannot change anything in our past. We can however change ourselves, we can repair ourselves and gain our lost integrity. These are the 6 things that research has shown as the essential needs of a child. #1 - Ongoing nurturing relationships Every baby needs a warm, intimate relationship with the primary caregiver over a period of years, not months or weeks. This is far more important to emotional intellectual development. The early cognitive training or educational games if this relationship is absent or interrupted a child can develop disorders of reasoning motivation and attachment infants, toddlers and preschoolers me these nurturing interactions most of their waking hours. #2 – Physical Protection Physical protection, safety & regulation is needed both in the womb and in infancy. Children need an environment that provides protection from physical and psychological harm, chemical toxins, exposure to violence. Our lives and the lives of most of our children are way too chaotic. This is not what the child needs. In addition to a loving, committed central relationship is peace and safety, security and stability #3 - Experiences tailored to individual differences Every child has a unique temperament. Tailoring their early experiences and nurturing a child’s individual nature prevents learning and behavioral problems and enables a child to develop his or her full potential. If given the right nurturing environment, it will spontaneously generate a true self. When that environment is not conducive to the growth of that true self a defensive false self is built up. A defensive false is self designed to defend against the terrible anxiety of environment that makes demands on the child instead of nurturing the child’s fundamental needs. #4 - Developmentally appropriate experiences Children of different ages need care tailored to their stage of development. Unrealistic expectations can hinder a child’s development. It is about the parents needs not the children’s needs. We must encourage our children to become all they can be to use the phrase, but the simple truth is, we have to tailor those inspirational opportunities for their needs not make them comply with our expectations. #5 - Limit setting structure and expectations Children need structure & discipline. They need discipline from parents who themselves are disciplined so it will not do any good to tell a child, what to do in the parent themselves cannot do it in their own adult lives. Children learn by example so if the discipline comes from a place of anger, hostility, frustration, fear, anxiety & not devotion and love of the child & their needs than the discipline is going to derail the child’s development. #6 - Stable supportive communities and culture To feel whole and integrated children need to grow up in a stable community. This means a community with a continuity of values in family, peer groups, religion and culture. This one I think is the most neglected. Our culture has become chaotic our families are breaking up the divorce rates are through the roof.

Immigration detention takes place for sovereign states to assess claims of asylum prior to approving entry to their country. Unfortunately, detention practices have been proven time and again to increase the incidence and severity of physical and mental illness. Children, being a particularly vulnerable group are protected under numerous UN conventions. The Convention for the Rights of the Child states that detention should be used as a "last resort" and for the "shortest possible time". Regrettably this is oftentimes not the case, and the incidence of paediatric mental illness is at an all time high. This is not only foreseeable but is preventable, and should be outlawed by nations, as it is in international human rights laws.
