May is Maternal Mental Health (MMH) Awareness Month

The Policy Center for Maternal Mental Health, formerly 2020 Mom, launched the U.S. Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week social media campaign in 2014 after several organizations voiced interest in raising awareness on social media. The campaign has run the first week of May each year. It was first launched through the National Coalition for Maternal Mental Health and, in 2017, through TheBlueDotProject. The campaign was turned over to Postpartum Support International along with TheBlueDotProject to lead along with their world maternal mental health day and to promote the U.S. maternal mental health hotline, which PSI held the Health and Human Services Agency contract.
