Welcome to the first post on Parental Mental!
I’m Leanne, the creator of this site, and I’m sharing my good news, which is the launch!
Over four years ago, I left my long-established career in the corporate world because I was suffering mental illness. 
At that time, I’d wanted to establish a resource to help other parents who were going through the same thing that I was.
I’ve had the dream of creating this forum for many years and, with motivation from the COVID-19 lock-down and supportive people on social media and in my daily life, I finally produced! 
Four years of thought were hyper-focused into four days of design, and here we are: Parental Mental is finally live!

I hope this serves as an inspiration to others out there. In addition to providing a space for parents to talk, I hope that it shows, no matter how low you feel right now, something good, and often unexpected, may be waiting just around the corner and will change your life.
