Tell us about Maternal Mental Health Month
Maternal Mental Health Month is more than just 30 days fully dedicated to raising awareness about perinatal mental health. It is an opportunity for PSI to make a worldwide impact with the help of other organizations, providers, and survivors of perinatal mood disorders willing to share their knowledge, stories, experiences and most importantly, the resources that can support help-seekers in healing. This year, we want Maternal Mental Health Month to be a celebration of hope, help and healing.
