Inclusive Education Project Podcast

Jun 5, 2018

A child’s mind is so powerful and its well-being should be of utmost importance. Yet, many kids who suffer from mental illness rarely receive the help and attention that they require. In this episode, we revisit the matter of mental health and illness since May was Mental Health Awareness Month, and we share our own experiences with how we try to stay mentally fit.
