In today’s high pressure, go-go-go society of cell phones, social media and instantaneous communication it can be a challenge to just sit and listen to someone. At Kids In Crisis, every day we see the power of what it means to really listen.
It’s estimated that 1 in 7 children today are living with at least one treatable mental health disorder. This could be anxiety, ADHD, depression. Many of these kids are not being diagnosed, let alone treated. Kids In Crisis works to help children like this, all day every day. One very simple yet incredibly effective method we’ve always relied on is journaling. Whether this is with our residents in our SafeHaven for Kids shelter, or through our TeenTalk and KidTalk programs in schools and in the community.
