Happy Mother’s Day! How appropriate that Mental Health Awareness Month and Maternal Health Month are both in May. National Teachers’ Day is May 3rd and National Nurses’ Day is May 6th. Our mothers are often our first counselors, first teachers and first nurses. It’s also true that moms notoriously neglect their own health as they strive to keep their families healthy.
We wanted to spotlight all the different ways mothers care for humanity and need to be cared for by humanity. We’re profiling moms who taught and nursed professionally. We also have advice on dealing with postpartum depression and navigating family court during custody disputes.
Since May ends with Memorial Day, we feature a beloved St. Simons Island tradition: Taps at Twilight. We also take a look back at a spring break event that is sure to put a smile on your face: SOAR’s iCan Bike Camp. Working on this issue has helped me through some challenging times in my own mental health. I hope reading it will do the same for you!
