Mothers in Mind

Being a mum can be hard sometimes. Upsetting experiences in your past or present can add unique challenges when parenting young children. Mothers in Mind is a mother and child group specifically designed to meet the parenting needs of mothers who have experienced things like family violence, childhood abuse, and sexual assault, and who have a child aged four or under.

Mothers in Mind is a ten week group program run by Baptcare, where mothers can talk about parenting issues with other mums who have had similar experiences and build connections, learn helpful ways to cope with anger, worry and stress, increase confidence in parenting and attachment, and explore what helps children feel safe and secure.

During each session there are lots of opportunities to play with your child, and each week has a picture and story from the session that you can take home and keep. There is also lots of practical advice on how to take time and care for yourself.

Mothers in Mind workers will come and meet with you at home or in the community before you start your group so they can get to know you and your child or children and answer any questions you have. They will also check in with you after each session.

Baptcare run Mothers in Mind groups in the North and South of the state. If you are interested in joining the next group or know a mum who might like to attend, please call us and ask to speak with a Mothers in Mind facilitator.
