In the recent National Center for Youth Law podcast episode, “A Flourishing Start: ABC’s of Child & Family Well-being,” the host speaks to Pacific Clinics’ Birth to Five Coordinator Danielle Jovanelly-Godfrey, and another guest to discuss generational trauma, how it manifests in young and the well-being of mothers and caregivers.
During the conversation, Danielle says, “For babies or young children, the physiological systems will manifest in sleeping patterns, feeding, irritability or tantrums; or while in utero and is exposed to increased levels of stress or substances can cause secondary issues.”
With 12 years of mental health experience, Danielle is passionate about helping children and their caregivers with their mental health struggles. Having witnessed the age spectrum of youth who have mental health challenges, she finds her work fulfilling to be able to prevent mental health struggles of both children and caregivers to help communities thrive.
