Maria Quiban Whitesell, resident Morning meteorologist for #GoodDayLA and author of the new book, “You Can’t Do It Alone,” stressed the importance of mental health and how it affects everyone.
With the release of her new book, Maria partnered with a mental health counselor who specializes in grief. At the very core of her book is a message of hope and carefully curated and scientifically-backed guideposts on how to deal with loss and navigate life without your loved one – be it a spouse, a parent, a partner, or even a four-legged friend.
Maria also highlights the importance of finding the correct language to communicate and relate better to kids when dealing with a difficult situation. Although transparency is vital, how parents share and deliver information can affect how the message is delivered to their children.
In Maria’s parting words, she noted that there is power, even in the challenging stages of life. It’s how we utilize that power and harness it for the good that’s key in coping with loss and braving that road towards recovery.
