Today on Small Changes Big Shifts, we have the Executive Director of Pathway to Hope, Kiersten Adkins, joining us to share how the organization is helping parents better understand their children’s mental illness diagnosis, treatments, and recovery plans in a supportive community that understands what they’re experiencing.
