What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

TheraParent Peer Support

Through an application form, expectant or current parents submit their information to be a "Blossoming Parent" and are matched up with a TheraMama or TheraPapa who serves as a peer support person through their duration in the program. TheraParents offer Blossoming Parents support, advice, resources and friendship during their official time in the program. Parenthood can be isolating, and the goal of the TheraParent program is to let Blossoming Parents know that they are not alone.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

It is our goal to empower and support parents with the tools needed to be their best selves and raise healthy children and healthy families. We wish that no parent struggles with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders alone and that they are able to find the support they need, by increasing access and affordability.

Athens Parent Wellbeing is a community-based organization utilizing a network of professional therapists, doulas, and trained peer support parent volunteers to support a variety of emotional and educational needs of parents struggling with mental health concerns during pregnancy and postpartum in Athens and the surrounding counties.

We support parents who need access to professional therapy services specializing in perinatal mental health and our financial assistance program gives parents with financial constraints more equitable access to mental healthcare services.

In the last two years we have expanded from having three therapists to having twenty therapists working in our network. We have paid for several of these therapists to attend advanced Perinatal Mental Health trainings and certification courses, bolstering their existing skills in this area. We have increased our pregnancy & infant loss support groups from bimonthly to monthly and are adding support for parents experiencing infertility. Our peer support program has held steady at 20 trained volunteers despite many moves & changes. Our weekly New Parents Support group is acting as a recruitment model as babies age and go through all the stages and parents want to begin to give back. We have built partnerships with practitioners with specialty therapies including Parent-Child Psychotherapy in which parents and children attend therapy sessions together and work through trauma and Family Preservation which helps separated parents coparent peacefully.

We have currently supported 140 parents (mothers and fathers) with thousands of hours of peer support, 756 completions of pay-what-you-can professional therapy sessions, 6 birth doula scholarships, Our next growth area hopes to collaborate with local NICUs (neonatal intensive care units) at local hospitals to bring together support for parents with preemies and babies with health concerns. So far we have been able to meet the needs of all 140 parents who have applied for support via our website in the past two years and do not have a therapy waiting list.

Executive Director

Monira Silk

Monira Silk has been a staple in the Athens parent community since she founded a small business called reBlossom in 2010 after her daughters were born. Prior to opening reBlossom, she was a photojournalist turned ESOL teacher, but she felt a calling to help families making the transition to parenthood. In 2021, Monira founded Athens Parent Wellbeing, a nonprofit focused on the mental wellbeing of mothers and parents during pregnancy, postpartum and beyond. This new nonprofit was a natural extension of reBlossom, as the need for such an important service became evident through the personal connections made through classes and daily interactions at reBlossom.
