Off-Fridays Library: Mothers

Mental Illness Link Library




Everyone has feelings about mothers, whether it’s love, hate, an awkward combination of the two, or some muddy in-between feeling. On the first week of the “Off-Fridays” mental illness blog share, which fell on Mother’s Day weekend 2017, six bloggers joined together to build this resource library on posts relating to motherhood and mental illness. Many of the posts are about what it’s like to be a mother with a mental illness, whether that is Postpartum Depression, PTSD, Bipolar Disorder or Generalized Anxiety. Some of the posts are simply odes to motherhood and the often unrecognized tribulations which mothers go through. All of these posts are unique, radically honest, and important. I invite you to browse this link library, and respectfully engage with these nine posts on motherhood and mental illness. If you would like to get your link into an Off-Fridays link library, check the Off-Fridays main page to see which one is currently open for submissions.
