The M.O.M.S. Movement
 
The Movement  OMothers Standing-up-together
It takes A Village
We are Mothers and Other Individuals who have experienced grief, pain, shock, outrage and deep heartbreak, in response to the treatment our loved ones received, through mental health care agencies and institutions. Many of us have also experienced similar tragedies under mental health care in foster care systems, mental healthcare in criminal justice systems, and mental healthcare under guardianship practices and laws.
 
When we asked for help for our loved one in crisis this is what happened to many of us (click here to read the heartbreaking stories of Mothers across the country...)
 
We ask how could this ever happen, and although there is no excuse for the abusive and often cruel actions of those in power over our children's lives, we must also look at the bigger picture and ask  how such agencies and institutions became so powerful.
 
We believe it is a serious societal issue and we must address that as well as direct advocacy for humane, compassionate care with voice, choice and dignity for our loved ones. 
 
We believe that one of the main contributing factor is that...In our society; family, friends and neighbors have become alienated and isolated. We lost the ability to care for each other and gave our power and trust to these agencies, institutions, and laws. Without local community input and control we became dependent on forces who, as it turns out, are often more beholden or controlled by bottom line profit industries and/or are  bureaucratic nightmares . And now Our communities are in chaos and crisis, and the emotions of grief, pain, and outrage  are often what we experience when we receive their version of the "help"  that is offered.  
 
Thus we have dedicated ourselves to be the Change we seek in Our Communities!
 
We, as Mothers, and Other Concerned Individuals, gather together to inspire, empower, console, comfort, educate, care  and advocate for each other.
 
We act together:
 
  • for Freedom of Choice;
  • for Compassionate, Safe, and Effective Care With Dignity
  • for Compassionate, Safe, Empowering Sanctuaries for Healing;
  • for Justice
  • and to Shine a Light on our local, state and federal broken systems;
 
 
 
We are dedicated to transforming our isolation into
Villages of  Empowered  Interdependence    
 We Welcome your Participation!
Gather with us once a month or participate in our
quarterly conference calls …
