World Maternal Mental Health Day

Wednesday, 6 May 2020


4 – 10 May

UK Maternal Mental Health Matters Awareness Week
Perinatal Mental Health Partnership coordinates the UK Maternal Mental Health Matters Awareness Week. This year’s theme is JOURNEY TO RECOVERY. The theme also allows us, for the first time ever, to run a social media photo campaign to officially launch the week on 4th May with photos of shoes with the hashtag #pmhpjourneytorecovery to signify a journey. Read more on the PMHP UK Facebook page.
Location: United Kingdom

Letters of Light
To mark the official global day and the awareness week in the UK, The Every Mum Movement is looking to run a series of Letters of Light get-togethers with a number of organisations and women organising local events where mums are invited to come along and write Letters of Light for mums currently suffering with their maternal mental health. These letters will then be collected and donated to the project where they will then be sent on to mums in need. An important part of this will be to highlight the importance of authentic peer support and how it can help with a mums recovery. Through social media during this week we will also be running a campaign to encourage women (who can’t attend an event) to write their own letters during that week and to encourage mums in need of a letter to get in touch to register to receive one.
