At Moms Gone Wild we're huge advocates for supporting all aspects of mothers' lives, including their mental health. Becoming a parent brings about massive changes to one's life. Often times, this journey leaves us feeling overwhelmed, lonely, and exhausted. It's difficult to navigate motherhood with so many critical external (and internal) voices.
Our series of mental health seminars and workshops is designed to hold space for an honest conversation about motherhood. We hope to provide a sense of empowerment, hope and solidarity within our community. If you'd like to be invited to our next workshop please be sure to sign up for our email list and join our Facebook Community.
These events would not be possible without the support and generosity of many local businesses and individuals! If you'd like to be involved in a future mental health event for mothers please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Combating Anxiety During COVID-19 - April 14, 2020
The latest installment of our Mental Health Speaker Series is here! 🙌♥️
I had the opportunity today to have a heart to heart with Tabasom Eblaghie., RCC about what we can do to control our thoughts and emotions when life feels out of control. Our discussion was guided by the themes that emerged from the questions that many of you submitted last week.
We focused on what to do in terms of:
1) Physical Health
2) Emotional Health
3) Spiritual Health
4) Mental Health
We also discussed what can be done to assist the children in our lives.
Please feel free to share the video with anyone who may benefit.
Above all else, please stay well and reach out if you are struggling.
