Right on Kelly! This is so important. Mothers do need as much support from one another as we can give. We are creating a toolbox for mothers and mothers-to-be. Check out LIFT Rural Women Toolbox, "My Posse of Support."
Depression and anxiety often hold us ladies back from finding the support we need. We want to hit this topic on some level too here in Montana where rates of mental illness are ever growing. Hope we can collaborate in the future!
Hey Laura! We are creating a toolbox for mothers and mothers-to-be so that women can better understand their local support system. I want to hear more about how you are connecting women in the same neighborhood. I feel like our clinics in Montana could benefit! One of our main goals is to help women find other women to lean on when times get tough. Look us up! We are The LIFT Project, from Missoula, MT. Our submission is called "LIFT Rural Women: "My Posse of Support."
You've got some great ideas! We have some work to do in terms of gathering feedback from rural clinics around Montana. Our concept is mostly an idea that has gotten some enthusiasm from health care providers but we do not have the qualitative data for support. We will certainly include this in our future plans--thank you!
