Parental Mental Health – Facilitating Positive Interdependence
Parental mental health is often an unintentionally overlooked element of children’s mental health. By facilitating a safe space for parents to explore their own mental health, and seek help if needed, can have a positive impact on the child.

This 90-minute session presents a Lived-Experience perspective on pursuing treatment for a parent’s mental health concerns and an ADHD diagnosis. The session will provide insights on how a parent with a late-life diagnosis parents an ADHD child while managing both of their health conditions. The session will also touch on the notion that parents who seek help, at any age, for undiagnosed mental health concerns, can benefit the entire family.
