MMHLA has convened a Board of Advisors to center the voices of those with lived maternal mental health experience and professional expertise in our advocacy efforts. The Board of Advisors will convene four times in 2021 to advise MMHLA’s Board of Directors and staff on issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion and to ensure that all policies and programs address racial inequities in maternal mental health.
In creating the Board of Advisors, MMHLA sought individuals with lived experience with maternal mental health conditions as well as the mental health and healthcare providers who care for them. Members of the Board of Advisors are diverse in experience, background, geography, gender, race, ethnicity, and family situation to ensure an atmosphere of inclusiveness, respect, understanding, and acceptance.
