Back-to-School Mental Health Tips | Kansas City MomCast Episode 26

Going back to school can be exciting. It can also be terrifying, particularly for kids who have already experienced bullying, anxiety, stress, depression or trauma. Students today are grappling with intense experiences, social media and school shooting drills.

If you’re feeling a whirlwind of back-to-school stress and anxiety, we have tips on how to help you and your child. Today we have the pleasure of interviewing Kim Ludwig, Director of Clinical Operations and a licensed clinical social worker at Research Psychiatric Center.  We will be discussing all things back to school and mental health, including at-home coping strategies, internet and social media boundaries, modeling healthy behavior, and utilizing valuable resources in our area.

Research Psychiatric Center treats adolescents and adults and offers behavioral health assessments 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can reach a mental health professional at (844) 207-4511.

Hi! I'm Megan, former teacher turned stay-at-home-but-never-home mom to Peyton, 7, and Gage, 4. I host the Kansas City MomCast podcast! I'm married to the most patient person on this earth, Chris, and we live in Overland Park with our kids, an insane lab, and two guinea pigs. You can find me over committing to everything, reading informational and self-help texts, listening to podcasts, organizing, spending time with friends over margaritas, thrifting, and staying up way too late to have peace and serenity. I love people and hearing their stories and look forward to connecting with KCMC readers!
