This week on WITH WHIT, I spoke with two inspiring women, Sharon Feldstein and Patsy Noah. They are BFFs, celebrity moms and the founders of YourMomCares! Sharon is Jonah Hill and Beanie Feldstein’s mom and Patsy Noah is Adam Levine’s mom! I was so excited to sit down with them to talk about their company YourMomCares, a non-profit fighting for children’s mental health.
Sharon and Patsy are banding together with other mom’s across the country to change the dialogue from “mental illness to mental wellness” – working tirelessly to breakdown the mental health stigma. I felt so lucky to be able to talk to them, especially because I have a huge responsibility right now to teach Sonny what it means to be mindful and aware of his emotions. I am beyond grateful to know that there are women like Sharon and Patsy out there working to help other moms and their children. YourMomCares (#YMC) creates and funds innovative, cutting-edge programs, treatments and solutions which have a direct impact on the mental health of children and adolescents. In addition to strategic partnerships, #YMC’s “Mobile Moms Fund” allows them to quickly go where the need is greatest (as moms always do!) to fund work being done to address a variety of pediatric mental wellness emergencies. The fund is used to support organizations like The Center for Pediatric Resilience, The Harris Project, RAICES, Women’s Refugee Commission, Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights, It’s About Humanity, SNACK and The Trevor Project.
YMC has partnerships with UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and Children’s Health Fund. Additionally, they have a new relationship with McKenna’s Grace, a non-profit which is building an app to help college students help each other improve their overall mental health and well being.
