My name is Amy Tucci. I am a single mother to three boys, aged 11, 14 and 16. My eldest son had a serious mental health crisis starting in 2017. I had to call 911 for help in May 2022. We tried different schools and programs to help him, such as Wilderness and Therapeutic Boarding School. He also had one-on-one tutoring and attended a Therapeutic Day School.
He had to stay in an Acute Psychiatric Inpatient Hospital, and then went to a Short Term Residential Treatment Center. After that, he went back to Therapeutic Boarding School.
Now, he is thriving in a small supportive boarding school, and l'm so proud of him.
During this time, I got divorced and started my own company. It was overwhelming and difficult to make the decisions I faced for my son and my family. I wondered why there weren't resources for mothers like me. I have an advanced degree and consider myself educated and proactive in my parenting. I was fortunate to have the means to make choices that other families can't. Still, it felt completely chaotic as I found myself making massive decision after massive decision. I was learning whatever I could under duress when I would have much preferred thoughtful contemplation.
Everywhere I looked, there was more workload for me. Even worse, I felt judgment from many medical professionals I needed to consult with. I knew we could do better.

My live course is a unique opportunity to work directly with me. The course will only be offered on demand in future iterations. It's a chance for mothers to learn how to thrive in their role as the primary support for their child, while also taking care of their other children, family, and themselves.
