I am honored to be spotlighted by LEAD, inc as a mental health advocate. LEAD is a nonprofit mental health advocacy organization founded in 2012 by a group of high school students. LEAD offers innovative, engaging, evidence-based programs which improve early intervention for mental illness.
As a clinical psychologist treating children, adolescents, and young adults, I am a strong proponent of early, aggressive, evidence-based interventions for young people who are struggling with mental illnesses. My personal and professional values align closely with those of LEAD, so I was thrilled when LEAD asked me to publish a VIP guest post for their blog! My post went live yesterday. This piece describes a topic about which I am passionate: Empowering Parents to Support Adolescent Eating Disorder Recovery.
