Speak Up: Delaware campaign focuses on kids’ mental health

Posted

Representatives from the Medical Society of Delaware, the National Alliance on Mental Illness in Delaware, Nemours Children’s Health, The Life Health Center and the Campaign for Kids have come together to promote mental health awareness in school-age children. The partnership is centered on a new campaign, “Sound the Alarm for Kids” — created to promote the health and well-being of Delaware youth and respond to what experts are calling a national emergency, as the mental health crisis continues to rise.

  • Odd, in education, we have been talking about this for years. — Howard Gaines III
  • An increase in anything usually means something has changed or been altered to affect the change. Many, many years ago, when I was a child, mental health issues were almost unheard of. We had kids with problems, of course. But half of 1% would probably be a guess. Maybe all of these health professionals may want to look at what has changed, in childrearing, child care, child medication and — one of the more important — medical approaches to child health over the past 50, 60 and even 70 years. — Dennis Mehrenberg

 

 

Milford’s French family has a heart just in time for Thanksgiving

The season of giving came a little early for Todd and Lauren French this year. After all, Mr. French got the gift of a lifetime as the recipient of a successful heart transplant at Penn Hospital in Philadelphia last week. And just about two weeks prior to that, on Oct. 20, the married teachers saw their family grow by one, when Ms. French gave birth to their second child, Penelope Rose “Penny” French.

  • Penn has an amazing heart-transplant program. I received my gift of life through them in 2017. Best of luck to you in your recovery and may you get many great years of life. — Tiffany Burton
