Welcome to the ReachOut Parent forums!
Thank you for sharing your experiences as a single mum. I understand that single parenting can be quite challenging and it can be even more so trying to maintain a strong and healthy relationship with a teenage daughter who is going through a mental health journey.
I see that you are hoping to connect with other parents who are going through a similar situation and just thought this might be a helpful article. Parentline is also a great service that can provide free counselling over the phone for parents. ReachOut also provides a free parent coaching service that can provide you with advice on supporting your teenager.
You're also always welcome here on the forums!

Hi @BonnieMum ,
Welcome to the forums! Thank you for being courageous and sharing your concerns. I'm sorry to hear that your daughter and husband have been fighting. It sounds extremely draining to have to come in between two fighting family members and it can be even more distressing to see it impact your family.
Given everything that has been happening for you, I'm wondering what you have been doing to cope during this time?
I can see that this experience has been affecting you deeply and it's important to remember to take care of yourself. If you would like some one-on-one support, ReachOut has a free parent coaching service that can provide phone-based or online assistance in supporting your children. Additionally, Parentline is another great service for parents to get confidential and qualified counselling.
I can also see that your daughter may be having a tough time too. Does your daughter have any professional support? If she is open to it, Headspace can provide free counselling and advice on mental health and wellbeing for young people.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
