Make your voice heard!
Tell your story to help raise awareness for maternal mental health issues so that more women will get treatment and fewer will suffer.

More than 75% of women who suffer from maternal mental health disorders go undiagnosed and untreated. This results in suffering for the women, their babies, as well as their partners and families.┬áLet’s pass the word that these disorders exist, and that they are treatable – often without medications even. Let’s end the shame and stigma that so often come with psychiatric illnesses.
