Most parents know they already have their hands full with their first child. Even if a second child adds to the family, parenting in today’s modern world of distraction and technology has never been more challenging.

What if you add mental illness into the mix? As a parent, dealing with the challenges of mental illness and being a parent can be doubling challenging.

That’s why I’m pleased to introduce Mental Momma with Heather Foster. Heather already has a great blog called Mental Parent, and we wanted to extend her audience and readership through Psych Central with this new take on parenting while living with a mental illness. You can learn more about Heather here.

Please give Heather a warm Psych Central welcome!
