MOTHERLOSS AWARENESS WEEK
MAY 1 – 7

the challenge
of coping alone

Let's Celebrate the small victories

For many of the 3.7 million daughters in Australia who've lost their mums, Mother's Day can be a time of renewed sadness and grief, no matter how long it’s been. So, in the lead up to and culminating on Mother's Day we're raising awareness of the services available to motherless daughters and offering hope to motherless daughters across Australia.

We all experience grief in our own ways, and we know progress and coping can be a lonely experience. We’re here to help daughters and families connect with others to share the emotional burden and find some joy in being connected with other like-experienced people.

Motherloss Awareness week 2022 celebrates the small victories in growing through grief.

we recently surveyed our members...

60%
have been diagnosed
with depression. While
80% believe mother loss
was a contributing
factor to their diagnosis.
1 in 2
have received treatment to help cope with mother loss.

GET INVOLVED

This year, we acknowledge the hard moments of coping with mother loss, and celebrate the small victories. Progress can be a giant leap, or a small step. Whatever it means to you - draw her wings and share your moment of progress to show others that every small step forward is invaluable, and we’re stronger together.

Sketch using any medium, on any surface, a set of angel wings, and share it to social media telling your story of progress as a Motherless Daughter, as someone who is connected to mother loss, or simply to show your support for a great cause.

Draw Her Wings - in the air, on your hand or on your arm, in the sand or in your notebook. Anywhere! It’s a symbol of remembrance and hope, and a celebration of our proud community of motherless daughters lifting each other up.

To help spread the word, use our awareness week hashtags, tag friends and family to spread the word and spark a worthy conversation.
