Healthy couples constantly make and accept bids to connect. When you turn towards those bids, you communicate to your partner that you see and value them.

Try to notice the ways in which you and your partner respond to such bids for attention, empathy, or connection in your interactions. You may find yourself too overwhelmed to respond with High Energy responses all the time: let them be your ultimate goal, not an expectation placed on either partner.

Read more about the power of bids and how to respond to them on the Gottman Relationship Blog: https://bit.ly/39UEOTS

We are currently recruiting presenters for our Ending the Silence program. Ending the Silence is a 50-minute presentation on signs and symptoms of mental illness designed to change misconceptions and “end the silence” surrounding mental health. It gives participants information and first-hand accounts from two presenters, one lead presenter and one young adult presenter.

NAMI is seeking individuals over the age of 18 who are comfortable with public speaking and have a connection to mental illness (through yourself or a friend/family member). Given the novel coronavirus, presentations may occur either virtually or in-person.

Please contact Nina Richtman at [email protected] if you are interested in becoming a presenter or would like more information.

🌟This table shows symptoms and behaviours that children who have experienced trauma might exhibit at different stages of development. The age ranges are merely guidelines.
For many children who have experienced trauma, their development lags behind their age in calendar years. It may be normal for your child to exhibit behaviours that are more common in younger children.

"If you suffer from an inflammatory condition, digestive upset, high blood pressure or depression, a closer look at vagal tone is highly recommended. We’ve known for years that breathing exercises and meditation are helpful for our health, but it is so fascinating to learn the mechanism by which they work. I hope this short article has inspired you to begin a meditation practice, as it has for me, and also to look for other means to manage the body’s inflammatory response."

“This guide, written by renowned ADHD expert Ned Hallowell (co-author of the “ADHD Bible,” Driven to Distraction), is full of easy-to-apply strategies that parents can use to help kids understand anger and manage it in healthy ways.

Emotional maturity is critical to succeeding in life, and kids with ADHD may need more help than others. Help your child learn how to manage his emotions.” (ADDitude magazine)

“Misinformation about attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD) abounds....Many think medication alone will control their symptoms. Others believe that ADHD will not affect their lives once they have graduated from college. And almost none fully understand the way the ADHD brain works to produce the symptoms they experience.”

Looking for picture books that teach children how to stop and think, handle emotions, and be mindful?

Books are such a powerful tool for parents — they are a way to connect, a way to calm down, and a way to teach life lessons. They can help parents talk about regulation with kids and to give insight into new self-regulation skills.

The below linked list by Nurture and Thrive has been put together so thoughtfully.

The first list on the link includes books that directly teach children about self-control strategies and are great to help children reflect on their own ability to self-regulate in various situations.

The second list includes books that teach children to breathe through emotions, to be able to pause before acting, to be mindful of their bodies and more. Through the methods of mindfulness, children can learn self-awareness and self-calming strategies that will become life-long skills for handling stress and emotions.

And finally, the last list below includes fun picture books that show characters in laughable and relatable situations. Kids will want to read these books over and over, and maybe they will learn a few self-regulation skills along the way.
