June 18, 2016
BENEFITING: Seleni Institute
ORGANIZER: Seleni Institute
EVENT: Seleni Mudderella 2016
EVENT DATE: Jun 18, 2016
As a member of Team Seleni for Mudderella, I will be helping my teammates through the obstacles and mud in order to support the Seleni Institute. This is the first center of its kind dedicated exclusively to improving women's lives through clinical care, research, online information, and professional training.
We know that depressed mothers are less likely to engage with their babies, talking and touching them less, and when these depressed mothers live in poverty, they're also more likely to struggle with domestic violence and substance abuse. Even worse, when mothers are depressed, the cycle continues because their children suffer – with higher rates of depression and other psychiatric disorders, cognitive delays, and significant behavioral problems.
Seleni is the first and only nonprofit dedicated to breaking this cycle of poor mental health. These crisis points in women's lives impact entire families, but they are also the opportunities that Seleni seizes every day.
Seleni believes that when women are supported, they are able to best care for themselves, their children, and their families. I believe in Seleni's mission and that is why I'll be pushing and pulling myself and my teammates through the muddy obstacles at Mudderella.
