About Lifeline for Families:

At Lifeline for Families, we develop and scale practical approaches to integrating mental healthcare into perinatal, infant, and child healthcare. We develop, implement, and test scalable models of care, trainings, and tools that support families, regardless of what professional or setting they present to.  Lifeline for Families is a mission-based, women-led organization which supports parents (all child caregivers) and their children in their relationship with one another in traditionally adult- or child-centric settings. We promote mental health for parents and/or children through social connections, trust, and nurturing. Lifeline for Families has two programs: Lifeline for Moms, which drives innovative solutions to addressing multi-level barriers (patient, clinician, practice, population, and policy levels) to perinatal mental health care, and Lifeline for Kids, which addresses the impact of trauma on children and families while simultaneously promoting protective factors, operating under the principle of “you don’t have to be a therapist to be therapeutic.” These programs are synergistic with each other; together, we work to create a holistic landscape of trauma-informed family care with an equity lens.
