I was so thrilled to have Tracy on the Dear Family, Podcast because it’s imperative to remember mental health effects the entire family. I am so grateful she is speaking up and letting parents know that even if their child seems ok on the outside, they may be suffering on the inside. Tracy reminds us to drop everything and listen without judgment when your child asks for help and to check in our loved ones.
