May is Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month 2020

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 100,000 New York State moms, dads 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.

Thank you for supporting Project 62™ – Building and Strengthening Perinatal Mental Wellness Parent Support Networks and Safety Nets in all Sixty-two New York State counties!
