Providing a foundation for sound mental health

CAMH Psychiatrist Dr. Peter Szatmari provides advice in the Globe and Mail on nurturing the most important parts of a child's well-being - their mental health.

The key to a healthy year for your kids is to make sure they are surrounded by healthy relationships. In my 30 years as a researcher in autism and child and youth mental health, I have learned that there is no health without mental health, and there is no mental health without healthy relationships.

It's important to remember that children's brains are hardwired to initiate and sustain supportive relationships with adults. And since there are intimate connections between brain and body, supportive relationships have a profound effect on physical health.
