Giving Voice to Parents of Children with Mental Illness

Stacy Ross is an author, speaker, and mother of a child/adult with mental illness. With raw honesty, Stacy openly shares her twenty-seven-year journey hoping to start a discussion that will help others feel validated, and less isolated.

Stacy gives voice to and creates a community for parents who are often battling it out alone. She empowers them with coping skills and resources. Stacy is currently penning a memoir, Searching for Slippers, expected late 2024.

Stacy's Story

After 30 years of professional experience in marketing and promotions, Stacy stepped away from her consulting business in 2020 and began to write full-time. Two years later, Inspired Girl Publishing Group agreed to publish her memoir. Shortly thereafter, Stacy told her story publicly for the first time on the Cornell University Alumni podcast, Cornell Thank U.

The overwhelming response from those with similar experiences convinced Stacy she had touched a nerve. Today, Stacy speaks in all sizes of venues, to various-sized audiences, determined to continue giving voice to parents and caregivers of children with mental illness.
