It is crucial for parents and caregivers of children with medical complexities to take the time to care for their mental health. With our new series Mental Health Minute, PHS clinical social worker Monica Oberg will answer questions we’ve gotten from parents and caregivers about navigating the stresses and concerns that come with this journey, from grief and balance to the isolation many parents experience.
To kick off the series, we’re going to be hosting a Facebook Live discussion with Monica at 12:30 on Thursday, December 20 as we discuss managing grief during the holidays, which can be a particularly difficult time for individuals dealing with medical concerns.
In the meantime, read on for Monica’s response to a parent’s concern about handling grief when raising a child with medical complexities.
