Motherhood & Mental Health

Maine Public

Mother's Day celebrates the vital role that mother's play--and is a day to express love and appreciation. But it's not a day that usually addresses the toll that motherhood can take on women. We'll discuss the mental health concerns that come with being a mom, from post-partum depression to stress from juggling too many responsibilities. And we'll learn about supports for mothers at various stages in life.

Panelists:
Joanne Grant, chief growth officer, Sweetser; clinical mental health counselor
Carrie Levine, certified nurse midwife and certified functional health practitioner with Whole Woman Health Clinic in Newcastle; author of Whole Woman Health

VIP Callers:
Claudette Ndayininahaze, executive director, In Her Presence
Nicole Witherbee, president & CEO, John T. Gorman Foundation
Jordan DeMerchant, Community Mental Health Ambassador, MOMS Partnership, BangorHousing 11:30
