WE LOVE MOMs and to break the cycle of silence on Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders, we are raising awareness at this local race dedicated to MOMs in Delaware.
We cannot do this alone. Are you a business or individual looking to support our program offering FREE perinatal mental health support? Email us at Hello@JosiesGrace.com with your story and we would love to connect.
If Mom is not assessed and treated for signs of perinatal mental illness, she cannot bond and thrive in her role. A safe place like ours with trauma-aware nurse-led programming and peers is where this starts. This is a public health crisis that needs our help.
As Josie's Grace started, a goal was to increase awareness and train up our community on Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders. To do this, we created a community of preferred referring providers. See below for our growing list.
All are ready to help you thrive as a new mom/parent.
That Parent Place 501-c3 / Doing Business as Josie's Grace Non Profit
Delivering perinatal mental health care in our community of Newark, DE.
President Biden signed the nearly $1.9 trillion dollar American Rescue Plan Act to provide COVID-19 relief to Americans. On December 1, 2021 Governor John Carney and Lieutenant Governor Bethany Hall-Long created a community-based mental health service fund. This funding supports the delivery of mental health services in Delaware communities. From this grant opportunity, Josie's Grace was created to address the amplified mental distress in the perinatal dyad. Josie's Grace elevates the public health and hope of our communities by providing early access and free programming during the fourth trimester. Funding will provide a location and nursing care to new mothers experiencing high stress. This trauma-informed and psychiatric nurse practitioner-developed curriculum is maternal and infant mental health focused.
After the initially funded year, the plan to establish a non-profit for sustainability in our community has begun to shape.
Update: That Parent Place 501c3 attained exempt status as of December 2023.
