Our 8th episode of season 2 on Impact stigma is all about early childhood behavioral and neurodevelopmental issues in children. The stigma and heartache parents face from the world and their families, friends and themselves is exhausting so we are talking about it. We are giving those parents a voice and having a great conversation talking about younger kiddos and their parents. Frontier Health has a fabulous free internationally recognized parent-implemented program that helps parents work with their own children with behavioral and neurodevelopmental issues. Come and listen while we laugh and dig deep with Regional Intervention Program Resource Consultant and a Case Manager for Holston Children and Youth, Rebecca Roosa! You don’t want to miss this one!

Season 2: Episode 7: Children Need Champions!

ATTENTION ALL PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS!!! This episode of Impact Stigma was made just for you! Mental health issues affecting children and youth in our communities and across the world is certainly not a new concept, however, with a dramatic increase directly related to the struggles and stress of dealing with COVID-19 our children’s mental wellbeing is more important than ever. We must be their mental health champions!
For this episode, we share how stigma specifically effects children and youth in need of mental health treatment, how to better communicate with them, and we share types of treatment that actually work. Our guest today is the Site Director for Frontier Health’s Adventure Program. This program is for youth under 17 that are struggling with substance use disorder and have a cooccurring mental health issue as well. Maranda Conner has her MS, LPC, LPC-MHSP, EMDR Certified, CSOTP and is almost finished with her EMDRIA Consultant Training.
Maranda is quite passionate about her “Babies” as she calls them and is joining us to share her personal story and talk with us about how mental health stigma is stopping our children and youth from getting help. She shares sound advice for parents and caregivers about effective communication when talking about mental health and what we can all do to Impact Stigma!

May is Mental Health Awareness Month along with Foster Care Awareness Month! Join us for Season 2, Episode 6 of Impact Stigma as we welcome our two special guests from Frontier Health’s two therapeutic foster care programs, Traces representing Northeast Tennessee and Values representing Southwest Virginia.
Courtney Mauk is the TRACES Parent Trainer and Recruiter for Northeast TN and Jessica Keith is the VALUES Therapeutic Foster Care Coordinator for Southwest, VA. Foster care is a topic that unfortunately has been riddled with negative stigma in the media, movies and the news. This is a message we hope spreads far and wide! We loved this conversation and had such a wonderful time with both ladies!
