What is a Letter of Light?

Shedding some Light on the Project

A Letter of Light is a handwritten letter of peer support written by a mum with lived experience of a maternal mental health (MMH) illness and sent to a mum currently suffering.

Women with lived experience of a maternal mental health illness, understand how powerful words from someone who has recovered from a similar experience can be.

These words inspire hope, solidarity and belief that recovery is possible!

This is the mission of The Letters of Light project; To share words of support and empowerment from women with lived experience to women currently suffering. And show there is life after a maternal mental health illness.

“Your illness will not be forever”
