When your family encounters difficult mental and emotional hurdles, homeschooling can give you the flexibility to step back and recalibrate. Join Sandra Kim (HSLDA Media Relations Director) and Carla Fuller (HSLDA Educational Consultant) for a conversation about how to recognize mental health issues in your family and how to leverage the flexibility of homeschooling to help you handle mental health–related challenges.
