About Peggie & her Blog
Peggie is a winner of Top 25 Mental Wellness Blogs by Moms
What mental wellness or mental health issues do you blog about?
I blog about the challenges and stresses of parenting a child with autism, as well as dealing with depression. I'm a registered nurse and I work in community based behavioral heath, so I also blog about current issues in mental health and mental health nursing.
If you could give other moms one tip on mental wellness, what would it be?
I would say that one of the most important things for us to do as moms is to learn to take time for ourselves. As women we're taught to be nurturers and caregivers, but we have to realize that if we don't take care of ourselves we're no good to anyone else.
What mental wellness resources would you recommend for moms? (Support systems, specific websites...)
There are a variety of mental health resources available in the community - support groups, individual counseling, and local mental health agencies, all of which can be accessed through The United Way. For moms like myself who are raising a child with autism I suggest contacting your local chapter of The Autism Society of America for information on local support groups for parents.
