Parenting Today is a collaboration between Eric Maisel and Heather Juergensen.
We believe children need a seat at the table in the larger conversation about psychiatric ethics and best practices.
Heather Juergensen is a health coach, writer and creator of online content. Her mission is to help individuals and families redefine mental health as something we can consciously cultivate with informed lifestyle choices, as opposed to an elusive destination controlled by doctors and magic pills.
Her training rests in the functional medical model, which views the body and mind as fully integrated and impacting each other in profound ways. She is the founder of the website The Strong Woman and the producer of the online conference The Depression Dialogues. Prior to her work as a mental health advocate, she was an award-winning actress and screenwriter.
