When you’re in the thick of parenting—whether it’s tending to a baby who just won’t sleep, or dealing with mercurial teenage hormones—it’s hard to get a sense of how you’re faring, let alone have the wherewithal to do anything about it. 

Next week, join Ann Douglas (author of Happy Parents, Happy Kids) and Amanda Munday (founder of The Workaround and author of Day Nine: A Postpartum Depression Memoir) for an in-depth conversation about the intersection of parenthood and mental health, and how we can support each other (and ourselves). Douglas’ book addresses how we can come up with effective strategies that support both parents AND kids, and Munday’s book is an honest, intimate memoir that blasts through the stigma and silence surrounding postpartum depression. 

Supporting the Parenthood Journey: A Conversation with Ann Douglas and Amanda Munday is happening on Tuesday, April 16 from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. at The Workaround (2080 Danforth Ave). The event is free. Childcare is available; email ello@theworkaround.ca to reserve your spot.
