Mothers In Mind

Becoming a mom is always challenging and upsetting experiences in your past makes it harder.

**Due to restrictions with COVID-19, this program is currently not available.  We are hoping to resume this program in 2021 when it is safe to do so**

Mothers in Mind® (MIM) is a mother and child program specifically designed to meet the parenting needs of mothers who have experienced family violence, childhood abuse, neglect or sexual assault, and have children under the age of four.

The program focuses on the needs of mothers who find that these hurtful experiences are making parenting difficult. The 10-week program helps mothers learn ways to manage stress and other challenging feelings, foster healthy self-esteem and respond to their children in a sensitive, supportive and effective manner.

Who should participate?

If you are a mother who has had hurtful experiences as an adult or child and have children under the age of four.
If you are wondering about whether your past hurtful experiences are affecting your parenting and your relationship with your child.
If your child has experienced or witnessed family violence or other hurtful behaviours.

Why should I participate in Mothers In Mind?

Being a mom can be hard at times. Upsetting experiences in your past or present can add unique challenges when parenting young children. We believe that when you have experienced hurtful events in your life, thinking positively about yourself as a mother is the first step to becoming the parent you want to be.
