DID YOU KNOW? The blue dot in our artwork is the national symbol for maternal mental health survivorship, support, and solidarity.
HOW CAN YOU HELP? Ask her how she’s really feeling…
Increasing awareness around maternal mental health will drive social change with a goal toward improving the quality of care for women experiencing all types of Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs), and reducing the stigma of maternal mental illness.
We are encouraging mental health professionals, friends and relatives of new moms to ask her how she’s really feeling and encourage her to seek help.
Reassure her it is not her fault.
Tell her she is not alone.
Offer to help her find resources.
Offer to go to the doctor with her.
PMADs affect the entire family.We’re all in this together.
