Peer Support Groups are focused on providing emotional and social support, information, education, and practical help to each other. The groups are led by trained mothers (Peer Leads) who walked in your shoes, who know the struggles and who listen attentively with respect, acceptance, and encouragement. Through these support groups, we assist mothers in obtaining resources, overcoming barriers, making connections.  Motherhood can be a stressful life change, but mothers don't have to go it alone. A support group provides an opportunity for moms to share personal experiences and feelings, coping strategies while also focusing on the positive sides of motherhood.

  • Provide warm, safe, confidential, shame and judgment-free environment

  • led by trained PPD/PPA Survivors

  • transform negative self-talk into positive self-talk
  • create long-lasting friendships

Mothers' privacy is guaranteed. We do not share and disclose any personal information that would identify any of our mothers. 

Mental health peer support services are considered an evidence-based mental health model of care. In meta-analyses, peer group participants have displayed a reduction in clinical symptoms of anxiety and depression and an increase in subjective quality of life as well as hope, self-esteem, and empowerment—factors also correlated with self-stigma.
