Friday #MentalHealth #MythBuster: Mothers Cause Mental Illness

#It is a myth that mothers cause mental illness in their children

#At one time in history, mothers were blamed for causing mental illness in their children

#There are various reasons why children develop mental illness

#Mental illness runs in families, but people without mental illness in their family can develop mental illness

#Scientific research reveals that identical twins have about a 33% chance of developing mental illness if one twin has it already

#Usually signs of mental illness show up in childhood, though it can go undiagnosed, if parents don’t know what to look for

#Mothers and fathers roles are important in developing healthy, stable children, but no one person can prevent all things, including illness

#Both parents’ family mental health history is important to know for your offspring

#Invest in learning your family mental health history before, during & after you have children
