Storytelling for healing, Storytelling for advocacy

Mothers on the Frontline is founded and run by mothers of children with mental health challenges to promote caregiver healing and children’s mental health advocacy through storytelling.

Our vision is a world in which mental health is destigmatized, respected and prioritized as an integral part of the overall health of individuals, families, and communities.

What we do:

  • Help communities and organizations develop storytelling skills among its members for advocacy and healing.
  • Offer a platform for mothers and other central caregivers to share their stories and help caregivers know that they are not alone.
  • Make first-person stories available to help policymakers and the public better understand how mental health intersects with other aspects of a child’s and family’s life.
  • Help mental health advocacy organizations improve their community outreach and support through storytelling workshops and trainings.
  • Elevate, honor, and support caregiving and caregivers through our May Children’s Mental Health Month and November Caregiver Month Information Campaigns.

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization
