mental health mondays

The mental burden for moms is heavy. We worry about our kids, we worry we aren’t doing enough as moms, we worry about our relationships. Throw in a pandemic, school from home, economic instability, divisive politics, and racial unrest and it can be crippling. 

Des Moines Mom wants to create a safe space for ongoing conversations about mental health. In the past couple of years, it is a topic that people are more comfortable talking about, but there is still room for growth. 

Mental Health Mondays

In this monthly series, we’re going to be talking about mental health for ourselves, for our kids, our spouses, and our families. We could talk about the importance of mental health for days. Some topics we want to dig into are anxiety and depression, bullying, postpartum depression, and therapy in general.
