We provide information, referrals, and compassionate, non-judgmental listening to mothers and family members over the phone or through secure email. You can share about your feelings or concerns with your "Support Mama", and have some of your questions answered. You can use this free service without leaving your home, and at times that are convenient to you. 

Email or text/call Csilla at (541) 231-4343. Let us know if you would like to talk to someone on the phone or through email. It will take a few days to connect you with a Support Mama.

WellMama's Phone & Email Support is also available for fathers experiencing stress, depression, anxiety or other emotional or mental health concerns, and for partners, family members or other support persons of a mother who may be experiencing any of these difficulties.
