The You Are Not Alone Family Support Group offers peer support and Integrative Health methods to moms and families living with Perinatal Anxiety & Depression (PMADs). PMADs occur during pregnancy and well into the the post-partum period.
This group is ideal for moms or pregnant women who are struggling with depression, anxiety, or maternal role transition. It is also ideal for moms or pregnant women with a history of anxiety and depression, and want to be proactive or preventative with current or future pregnancies.
Moms, dads, and babies (in arms/car seats) are encouraged to attend the sessions. For parents with active toddlers, ones that don’t let parents sit still, please call us at 315/470-7940 for other options for support.
Each Friday we offer a program called I Am Whole at 10:30 am, prior to the start of support group. I Am Whole includes Integrative Health activities that supports the discussion such as Moms on the Move, Got Your Back Massage for Moms, and more. Participants can attend both the activity and support group discussion, or just the support group discussion. Our activities and discussion are flexible, we understand if parents arrive after the start time. Join us when you can.
This Friday support group takes place most Fridays of the year and is part of our Family Perinatal Support Program at Crouse Health. It is open and free to all parents in the CNY area, regardless of where they delivered or plan to deliver.
For more information about the program, or if you have questions please call 315/470-7940. Otherwise we hope you join us by signing up here.
FYI: This program occurs most Fridays and we encourage you to check here for available dates. Also, registration is confidential and required so we can provide notices of changes/updates. Lastly, we follow the Syracuse City School District snow-day schedule. Our programs close on the same day the SCSD closes.
