  • Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month & Week (May 2024)

    On May 6, 2024, Congress introduced a resolution declaring May 5-11, 2024 “Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week” - marking the first time Congress has officially recognized Maternal Mental Health Awareness.


    The Policy Center for Maternal Mental Health’s founder, Joy Burkhard, was involved in declaring May as Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month in the first state, and the Policy Center has been supporting organizations across the nation in doing the same in their states, including, most recently, Indiana and New Hampshire.


    The [Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week] 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
