Seeking Help, Finding Hope: A Resource Guide

Seeking Help, Finding Hope | Twin Cities Mom Collective

We want to connect moms who are seeking help to resources within our community that can provide hope. Below are several organizations that can help with issues related to abuse and depression.

“So please reach out. Connect with that mom sitting by herself at the park. Say hi to the bleary eyed dad staring blankly at the Starbucks menu. And when you ask how someone is doing, really ask how they’re doing. Then listen. Don’t be afraid to get your emotions dirty. And if it’s you that needs a connection, please don’t hide it. You have friends. You are loved. And you are not in this alone.”
(Excerpt from When Anxiety and Depression Come Home)

Per the Minnesota Department of Health, “the COVID-19 pandemic is causing a tremendous amount of stress, fear and anxiety for many people. It’s important that Minnesotans have access to the mental health care resources they need to stay well during this challenging time. State agencies are working together to ensure these services are available, and they are also connecting people with private organizations that can provide support. This includes telemedicine resources (which replace clinic visits) and other well-being supports to help families and individuals cope.”
