Last month, I was interviewed by social media influencer and host of Divas with a Purpose, Michelle Garrett. She has such a powerful story and platform that the American Academy of Pediatrics invited her to join in a partnership with the Centers for Disease Control to address childhood trauma or ACES with a focus on prevention. I enjoyed our conversation so much that I invited her to share her journey with you. Many parents deal with things that could be a source of ACES for their children. Hopefully you can relate to Michelle’s story and learn from her experience to prevent ACES. We cover:

  • Impact of parental depression and suicide on children
  •  Healing and building resilience in the face of trauma
  • Asking for help- #findyour3

Thanks, Michelle Garrett!
