How are you and Michael doing?⠀

We are so grateful to have people in our lives who ask this question, who check-in. It's so important for our mental health and I'm sure, many others.⠀

I can't lie, the answer is constantly changing. So today, we're good. I'm doing really well, working very intensively on my mental wellness and finding what works for me 🖤⠀

Michael is content. He's happy about where he is and isn't feeling suicidal 💛⠀

All it can take is a few simple words, and for you to mean it, to change someone's thought patterns or get them through a tough time. How are you doing? ⠀

We talk a lot about how counselling has been a helpful resource for us.⠀

Our entire #1MillionCampaign is based upon it!

But the truth is ⠀

It's not for everyone.⠀

No, that cookie-cutter stereotype you see is not for you. It's not for anyone.⠀

What we don't always talk about and what we don't always see is what counselling and therapy can also include... for example: ⠀

-talk therapy⠀
-music therapy⠀
-group therapy⠀
-breath work⠀
-family counselling⠀
-CBT training⠀
-immersion therapy⠀
-support groups and forums⠀
-art therapy⠀
-play therapy⠀
-and so much more!⠀

And by a while I mean a YEAR .. so grab some popcorn 🍿 and strap in for my latest installment of Rebecca's Journey To A Healthier Well-being (Part 4)⠀

Our journey with YAC began as a platform to share our stories and experiences, it remains such an important piece to us .. to be transparent and keep the conversation going as authentically as we can.⠀

These 12 months have been .. well .. you'll read about it in the blog 👇👇⠀

Seeing our message reassuring one young woman it's okay to having feelings absolutely rocked our world.⠀

In fact, it brought me to tears when Melissa asked her daughter, Sienna Summer-Day, "how are you feeling today?"⠀

Our kids need us; they need us to be vulnerable, to share, laugh, and grow with them. To be honest and have real, one on one conversations.⠀

This tee + the exciting products that come along with The 'Playful Healing' Collection are our way of reminding one another to keep the conversation going. Keep checking in. Keep talking.⠀

It's time to #endthestigma .. because no matter your age, mental health affects us all 🙌🖤⠀

Proceeds from this collection will be distributed via #1MillionCampaign to Childhood Connections program for FREE child therapy services 💙💚💛❤️
