The May Campaign is the National public awareness effort spearheaded by the National Coalition for Maternal Mental Health to increase awareness of maternal mental health disorders.
From Monday, May 4th to Sunday, May 10th 2015, the NCMMH will share messages and images through social media and engage moms and advocates in a national poster hanging campaign.
You can support the campaign by sharing daily messages and hanging a poster in your community!
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.
