The Campaign

World Maternal Mental Health Day


Raising awareness of maternal mental health issues so that more women will get treatment and fewer will suffer.

Since 2016 a group of international activists for maternal mental health comes together once a year to raise awareness of this ever topic to demand maternal mental health services for all. This year, we continue the tradition to celebrate World Maternal Mental Health day on the first Wednesday of the month on 2 May 2018 

Key messages:

Maternal mental health matters. #maternalMHmatters.
Women, as well as their family and friends, need to know the signs of maternal mental ill-health and that they are not alone! They can find help and support for perinatal mental health problems.
