Ten to twenty percent of moms (800,000 new cases) suffer from postpartum depression each year. Others endure emotional strain that goes unreported because they lack a social support system, a low sense of self-efficacy, and lack knowledge about or access to resources.

Why should you care about about a mother’s emotional health?

There is a direct correlation between a mother’s emotional health and the psychological development of her children. When we support the emotional and physical wellness of mothers, we help the next generation become productive members of society.

At MomCare Network, a Chisholm Trail Communities Foundation organization, our mission is to provide education and emotional support to mothers in Williamson County. We do this by offering conferences called A Day for Moms. Mothers receive inspiration and instruction from experts in the fields of mental and emotional health, have access to representatives from local service agencies and enjoy camaraderie with other moms.
