Parenting is hard.
When you have a child who doesn’t fit neatly into a box, it can be even more challenging.
With the Mental Health Mamas, there’s No Need to Explain. We get it. Join us as we share a bit of what we’ve learned along the way, talk openly about mental health, work to help you feel less alone and gently remind you to do your best to take care of yourself while taking care of your people.

The Walking Story
Have you ever told yourself an entire story about someone from just a glance? Do you tell yourself stories about yourself that may or may not be true? We all do this! The Mental Health Mamas like to refer to this as “The Walking Story”. The good news is that we don’t have to believe the first story we come up with. Listen in as we talk about some of the ways we’ve learned to stay out of judgment and remain curious about ourselves and others.
