Is understanding the mind important for mental health and happiness?

Submitted by Dr. Ken Larsen

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them. — Albert Einstein

Dr. Dan Siegel offers some of his insights in how “me is we”.  He talks about our interconnectedness and how essential it is that we foster our connections with others in relationships.   He focuses on our educational system and what we can do to help our most valuable resource, our children,  develop more fully by understanding more about the brain, mind, and relationships.   He talks about “mental hygiene” being as important as “dental hygiene.”
