Our founder Teah Hughes knows firsthand how a divorce can emotionally impact a child and their family. Oftentimes, a child's voice is never heard over the noise between two contentious parents. This can lead to emotional scarring and if left untreated, can manifest into more serious mental health disorders like anxiety, depression, PTSD, and even thoughts of suicide. In 2015, Teah decided she wanted to help other children and youth receive the support and resources needed to cope with their parents' separation or divorce. Stuck In The Middle was formed with the mission to empower, strengthen and improve the mental health of children by providing professional, educational, and other resources to their families while navigating through the process of divorce or loss of a parent. By 2018, SITM held its first self-care workshop and continues to provide educational resources and support to children and their families in the Southern New Jersey area.
