MISSION

Our mission is to help people struggling with a Perinatal mood and anxiety disorder, connect to supports as soon as possible that are either low-cost or free. We also work to identify and acknowledge the impact of gender, racial and disability stereotypes on parenting and navigating challenges in the perinatal period. We open up these conversations in our daily interactions and through our podcast and blog posts in order to reduce stigma and increase opportunities to support parents.

VISION AND VALUES

Our vision is to create low barrier access to care and supports for people struggling with a Perinatal Mood or anxiety disorder, by having a connected network of peer supports and Perinatal mental health supports throughout the province of Ontario. Our vision also includes creating a space where the difficulties and realities of parenting are normalized so that parents feel comfortable to talk about their authentic experiences without guilt or shame.

We base our work on the values of compassion, anti-racism, community support, all-gender inclusion and anti-oppression.
