How a readers daughter recovered from self-harm
Readers responded in various ways to our mental health series (May 11, 18, and 25, June 1, 2023). To those seeking personal consultations: I focus on my college and graduate students, plus family business clients at risk for depression, anxiety and other disorders, so I no longer do therapy for others. Our book Lifeline contains a list of professional groups, hospitals, hotlines and other resources that can help you.
To those asking for workshops on mental health: I tailor webinars for schools, parent groups, businesses, corporations, parishes, government and civic organizations based on need, including discussions of warning signs, risk factors, what (or what not) to say and do. Sometimes we role-play communication strategies. Due to the uncertain COVID-19 situation and my health issues, I do online seminars rather than onsite. Specify which aspects you are interested in: teenage depression and suicide; anxiety in the workplace; school phobias related to exclusion and bullying; conflict among and within generations and so onand more importantly today, resilience and wellness at home, in school or in the workplace.
