Mayor Mark Barron has proclaimed May as Maternal Mental Health month, recognizing that maternal mental health directly affects women, infants, and children and should be viewed as a primary concern for the health and safety of families.  One in six new moms and one in ten new dads suffer from pregnancy or postpartum anxiety or depression. Research has shown that untreated maternal depression and anxiety during pregnancy or postpartum negatively affects birth outcomes and infant development, including infant mental health and brain development. However, screening and early intervention, including group therapy can protect mom, baby and the entire family.  To support expecting and new parents, the Jackson Hole Perinatal Advocacy Project is offering a free weekly support group.  This free support group is funded in part by a grant from the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole.

Things like, “If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor isn’t strong enough to rotate a 42-pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, […]
  • Shoot some skeet if you’re feeling like a crack shot - July 18, 2014
    I shot at a lot of clay pigeons when I was a kid, but I never did it at an organized trap or skeet club. And I’ve shot at a lot of birds, both upland and waterfowl. I may not have been born with a shotgun in my hand, but I picked one up not […]
