Mother’s Day Community Picnic 2021, Forsyth Park, Savannah

Monday, April 12th, 2021

FREE Mother’s Day 2021 Community Picnic, May 9, Savannah

In honor of Maternal Mental Health month, the Maternal Mental Health Collective will host a Mother’s Day community picnic at Forsyth Park.

You’re invited: Sun. May 9 2021, 10AM-noon. This gathering welcomes any and all Savannah-area mamas (including those who are pregnant).

Bring a picnic to the park for this free, fun, laidback outdoor meet-up. Stop by on your way to your Mother’s Day plans – or stay the whole time. Bring something to sit on, something to eat, and yourself just as you are. Cold beverages and lots of good company will be provided. You’re welcome to bring your kids and family with you, or not.

All moms deserve care, support, and social connection – and this pandemic year has been long and so isolating for many moms. Come on out to make new friends, relax in the springtime (at a safe, outdoor distance), and find your community. The group will gather in the grass near the bandshell and playground.

Please spread the word within your networks and let organizers know if you have any questions. Find more info here.

Savannah therapy therapists anxiety Chatham County counselor counseling

Low Country Counseling in Savannah

Anxiety Disorder, that on-edge feeling or worry happens frequently and leaves the body fatigued, stressed, and malnourished – can affect children, too, just like adults. The difference being that they don’t know the words to describe what is happening.

Therapists from Low Country Counseling in Savannah share the causes of anxiety and the two types of anxiety in children here.

So how can parents tell the difference between situational stress and actual anxiety? Children will display changes in behavior. Look for these signs or shifts in their habits.

Find Low Country Counseling’s tips on what to do when your child feels anxiety here.
