Sign the petition calling on the World Health Assembly and the UN World Health Organisation to officially recognize World Maternal Mental Health Day (WMMH Day), to be commemorated annually on the first Wednesday of May. This year WMMH day will be the 2nd May.
Maternal mental health advocates, researchers, academics, clinicians, and people with lived experiences are committed to improving the mental health support for women during and after pregnancy throughout the world.
As many as 1 in 5 new mothers and 1 in 10 new dads experience some type of perinatal mood and anxiety disorder in many countries. Over 75% of women do not get diagnosed and do not receive adequate treatment and support.
Together with the World Health Assembly and the UN community we can unmask the stigma and make maternal mental health care available to all.
