Dr. Jillian Roberts

Dr. Jillian Roberts is a Professor, registered psychologist, author and speaker. She is passionate about helping children and families unlock their true potential. The clinics she founded in 2003 have recently been renamed MindKey Health.

I began to envision a larger message, a message about how to help kids live in our changing world. I imagined a caring, integrity-enriched, adult problem-solver of the 21st Century – and I worked backwards. What would we need to teach our children & how would we need to teach them in order to set them on the path of becoming a problem solver who cares?
