Q: Can my mental health challenges block me from parenting my children?

A: As long as you are actively managing your wellness with a treatment plan that you are following and can show the courts the steps that you are taking, then there is no reason that you cannot parent your children as you did before you separated. You are modeling wellness for your children which is not a weakness it is a strength! Try to obtain a court order as soon as possible to have your parenting time re-established, your children will benefit from having a vibrant and healthy relationship with their dad.
