National Day of Action February 11th, 2016! 


NCMMH is thrilled to launch the first ever National Day of Action!  Our country's leaders need to know moms around the nation support federal bill "Bringing Postpartum Depression Out of the Shadows Act of 2015” (HR 3235 and S 2311). 
You, your family and friends, and your organization can all make the difference, by using your social media to tap into your amazing “boots on the ground” followers and grassroots advocates, encouraging them to participate in this National Day of Action!


Moms are the anchors in their households. When a mom isn't well, everyone suffers. Maternal Mental Health disorders impact 15-20% of pregnant women and women in the postpartum period (year after birth), yet most are never diagnosed and treated. 

By conservative estimates, this means more than 600,000 women in the U.S. suffer each year.  

These experiences can have lasting consequences on a mother and her family including her infant's cognitive and behavioral development, the well being of other children and her relationship stability.
