  1. Thank you, Mihran. I agree that the post I reblogged had wonderful information.

  2. Mental health conditions can affect any person regardless of gender, age, health status and income, and that includes people who have or want to have children of their own. Parenting is both greatly rewarding and a daunting task for anyone, but it poses some particular challenges for people with a mental health condition. Here, you will find information about parenting and mental illness, where to go to get help for you and your family, and how to support yourself and your children.

  3. It was a great post, wasn’t it. Particularly difficult to remember to build on strengths when we are feeling depressed or insecure, but so very important.

    “You can build on strengths, but you can’t build on failure.” Great post, and I found this line in particularly really resonated. Thanks Kitt for sharing 🙂

  5. Yes. I just started a draft Resources post (and page) about parenting. Not sure when I’ll get around to it.

  6. Thanks for sharing this, Kitt – the tips are useful and it’s good to know that articles like these are “out there” influencing one parent (and potentially family) at a time!
