Mental and physical well-being are core components of our overall health. Our ability to perform at our best and to tackle life's problems are all heavily influenced by how our body is feeling and the tone of our minds.

However, being in foster care can pose a lot of potential challenges for someone trying to achieve a balanced body and mental state. While it's a common experience for foster youth to change placements, being moved from your home or school can disrupt important relationships in your life and may even effect your ability to maintain your personal state of wellness. We all rely on feeling safe and secure to make sure our body and minds are working as well as they can. In times when there is something out of alignment in our lives, It's possible for circumstances to effect us in a way that can make it harder to cope with everyday issues.

Lucky for us, our health isn't only constructed through our biology or environment, part of our health is also formed from our attitudes and the choices we make. Wellness is about looking at the many facets of your life and understanding the role you play in the expression of your health. This page is dedicated to providing resources and support to youth who are seeking to know more about how to improve their wellness and or to provide insight into the challenges that foster youth face around this topic.

From Foster Care To Self Care

As a child there was a time I can recall when my foster mother punished me for bad behavior by not allowing me to attend a baseball game with the rest of my siblings. I was about six years old and I can still remember how upset it made me. I cried, yelled, and swore I'd never forgive her but nothing I did made a difference. For me not being able to go to the baseball game wasn't just a punishment, it was a very painful reminder of the loss I felt from my parents and as I cried the reasons I was crying began to change.

If Dr. Phil thinks he can...

If Dr. Phil thinks he can treat these children his way, why did he not open himself a medical facility too treat these children without medications to get them where they need to be in life, he's got the money to open these type of medical hospital for foster children that have problem,
