Here are some links to resources that I have found educational, comforting, etc.
- National Alliance on Mental Illness
- Dr. Daniel Amen – I was able to see a presentation by Dr. Amen at Saddleback Church‘s Mental Awareness Day, and I was blown away by the research he has been a part of! They perform SPECT (Single photon emission computed tomography) imaging to study brain problems. By measuring blood flow and activity, they are able to see what is working well, what is working too hard and what isn’t working hard enough. The brain controls everything in our body…if there’s a problem in the brain, there are going to be issues in health, memory, emotions/moods, etc.
- Psychology Today
- Kristina Kuzmic: I know every parent is thinking it, I’m just glad one has the charisma to say it in a way that doesn’t sound so negative! This woman is empowering, and is not afraid to share her bumps along the way.
