Coping Skills for Kids, Removing Mental Health Stigma & How Parents & Schools Can Better Support Children

Janine Halloran Post

An interview with Janine Halloran

Humans can have pretty big emotions, and kids in particular don’t always have the knowledge or experience to deal with them. They often need help and guidance to better process them.

Janine Halloran @copingskillsforkids is a licensed mental health counselor, entrepreneur and creator of the copings skills for kids products and resources for children. She teaches children how to deal with stress, anxiety and anger in healthy ways.

In this episode she talks about:

– How she first became a mental health counselor
– The incredible experience of helping a child with counseling have a total mindset shift that improved their outlook on life and themselves. An experience that motivated her to pursue her path in counseling and helping children further
– Why she values counseling and has sought it out for her own kids
– The reason she believes it’s healthier for her own children to receive counseling services from another professional, other than herself
– How schools can better address mental health and de-stigmatize it
– The products and resources she has created to help kids deal with stress, anxiety and anger in a healthy manner.

Hi there! I’m Royah Loie, a doula, childbirth educator, lactation counselor and the creator of The Insider Mom Podcast. Becoming a parent made me realize so many things, one of which is the incredible work so many moms do in raising their kids, work that sometimes goes unnoticed in society. It’s unfortunate because, I truly believe that moms have one of the most valuable jobs in the world .

That’s why I created Insider Mom, to help you on your journey as a person and as a parent. Whether you want to find ways to get more sleep, workout more and feel energized, learn about the best parenting strategies, make more time for self-care, or other topics, you can find it on the blog or podcast.
