MMHLA convenes and works with national and state organizations to align priorities and
to address maternal mental health (MMH) care with a coordinated, comprehensive approach.
MMHLA brings together individuals and organizations from the fields of maternal-child health, birth and postpartum professionals, infant and early childhood development, and mental health to address MMH conditions in a coordinated, comprehensive approach. MMHLA reaches across government, private, and nonprofit sectors.
MMHLA works side-by-side with sister organizations Postpartum Support International and 2020 Mom to coordinate national policy advocacy and awareness for MMH conditions. MMHLA participates in several national-level efforts to address MMH care, including Mind The Gap, Mental Health Liaison Group, and Lifeline For Moms.
Round Table Discussion
In May 2019, MMHLA hosted a Roundtable Discussion bringing together individuals and organizations to discuss current efforts to address MMH conditions, identify commonalities and overlaps, and create a roadmap for moving forward with a coordinated, comprehensive approach. Participants in the Roundtable Discussion included maternal-child healthcare providers, mental health providers, and birth and postpartum professionals from the government, nonprofit, and private sectors.
