Healthy Mothers Healthy Families


Healthy Mothers Healthy Families* is a health education and empowerment program for mothers of children with a disability.

The mission of the Healthy Mothers Healthy Families* program is to support, empower and encourage mothers of a child with a disability to learn about, and create a healthy lifestyle that fosters their own health and well-being, alongside a healthy, happy family life.

The workshops and website provide mothers with information, research findings and the shared wisdom of other mothers, to better support mothers to meet their important daily responsibilities caring for their child with a disability and family, whilst also caring for themselves.

Healthy Mothers Healthy Families* is a research-based program. Over 1500 mothers have contributed to the development and evaluation of the program and material on this website.

Kindred has finished facilitating our final HMHF workshops for 2024. An online version of the program is available here
