FMMH is a place to connect, build knowledge and explore opportunities to expand and leverage resources for maternal mental health.
An Equitable Approach to Maternal Mental Health
Maternal mental health is often overlooked and vastly underfunded. Funders for Maternal Mental Health members leverage our resources and cross-systems perspectives to increase access to maternal mental health services. With a deep commitment to justice, we center our work on those most impacted by systemic inequities across multiple systems. Our strategic approach includes these aligned strategies:
By Working with Each Other and Communities, We Can Change Lives
We invite foundations, grantmaking organizations and philanthropists to join us in increasing resources and expanding access to maternal mental health services for all pregnant and parenting people.
Investing in maternal mental health leads to better outcomes for many philanthropic priorities, including family economic security, workforce development, and educational attainment, and early childhood development. And most critically, our efforts, in partnership with women and communities of color, have the potential to change lives today and across generations.
