May is Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month 2017
May is Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month worldwide. In New York State, The Postpartum Resource Center of New York leads the way each May to make sure New York State residents are further aware of the #1 medical complication related to childbearing, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMAD). With over 50,000 New York State moms and families affected each year, we encourage everyone to become part of the PMAD Safety Net and join in the Ask The Question Awareness Campaign.
We invite you to get involved in your community as an individual, organization, health/medical center, faith community, corporation, school or college. Share information on social media, host a community event or training, promote maternal mental health screenings and more. Join us in breaking the silence of the stigma of maternal mental health and help increase awareness to save lives and build healthy families for vibrant communities.
Sign up now to become a Participant and use our Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month toolkit to increase awareness and help families get to the help and support they need!
The Maternal Mental Health Awareness digital toolkit will be available March 2017 here for you to download and be involved in May (or use anytime throughout the year).
