Why Reboot

Childhood trauma isn’t something you just get over as you grow up. Paediatrician Nadine Burke Harris explains how the repeated stress of abuse, neglect, anxiety and parents struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues has real, tangible effects on the development of the brain. This has a huge impact on learning and is why we at the YMCA School look to empower and support students in giving them a Real Opportunity to succeed and help them reverse this cycle through our wellbeing programs and holistic approach.
