Making mental health intentional for our children and ourselves with Dr. Melanie McNally

Unlocked

It’s not a secret that mental wellness is on everyone’s minds these days. It is one of the most prioritized topics within our lifestyle design community when it comes to values and life intentions. Phil and I are in the same boat. We all prioritize and actively work on our mental and holistic wellbeing. But where we sometimes feel a little at a loss is how we help our children design mental wellness into their lives. So today, we talk with Dr. Melanie McNally, a Gen Z psychologist, who spends her time trying to help as many tweens, teens and their parents navigate this very topic. She recently advised the White House on the current state of youth mental health and is actively creating solutions to help curve the negative downturn. In a field where many people are feeling under supported and overworked, Melanie is getting creative about how to help our youth become the super heroes of their own lives by reducing anxiety and building confidence. In this episode, Melanie shares her wealth of wisdom. She provides ideas and tips on how to think about your child’s mental health and how to be intentional about supporting them. We go beyond the tweens and teens and talk about what it looks like to start early, supporting children at the youngest of ages. Even if you don’t have children, this episode will help you reflect on and give you ideas for your own mental wellness practices and how to make them more intentional. Enjoy the episode, friends, and when you’re finished, please hop on over to the links in the show notes to connect with Melanie!
