Written by a Licensed Clinical Social Worker after she recovered from her own experience with a Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorder, this curriculum equips facilitators to create a support group for mothers on the path to emotional wellness. While all parents need support, this curriculum is designed specifically for mothers experiencing a Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorder, such Postpartum Depression or Postpartum Anxiety. Steeped in practical Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and the deep wisdom of Mindfulness, facilitators can feel confident that support group attendees will learn concrete tools each week. Whether you are a licensed mental health clinician, a nurse, a doula, a midwife, a lactation consultant, a grandparent, a clergy member, or a parent who has fully recovered from a Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorder, you are qualified to create a support group with an evidence-based curriculum as a guide. Most importantly, you will give mothers hope that they are not alone, and with treatment, they will be well.
