Elevate Counseling: Supporting Kids and Teens Mental Health In The Greater Phoenix Area

Friday Five: Kids and Teens

Here’s What We’ve Been Reading To Support Your Family’s Mental Health

This Edition: The perils of pushing kids too hard, how Apple plans to help parents dial back phone use (no pun intended!), the parent/child mental health connection, and age-appropriate tips for screen use.

  • The parent/child mental health connection: According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 12.8% of teens will experience at least one episode of major depression.  Previous research has linked teen’s mental health to that of their parents.  But new research suggests that there’s a flipside to that “parental effect.” When teens are treated for their depression, their parents’ mental health improves too.
