New centre helps struggling mothers go beyond stigma of mental health

The Globe and Mail

Getting parenting support is tough at the best of times, but especially challenging for women struggling with mental-health issues. Now a first-of-its-kind centre that dispenses with the need for formal referrals to a child psychiatrist, long wait times and fees is helping women be better moms.

Launched in January by Women’s College Hospital, but only officially announced this month, the Toronto centre – a pilot project – offers advice on helping kids overcome everything from sleep and eatingdisorders to sibling rivalry.
