WE ALL HAVE A ROLE IN IMPROVING THE MENTAL HEALTH OF PREGNANT AND POSTPARTUM PEOPLE

How can I use the Framework?

The Framework is here to guide and support your work. You can use the Framework’s tools to talk about the importance of perinatal mental health with your colleagues and partners, advocate for resources and funding, inform policy change, and align programmatic efforts. Providers, researchers, policymakers, state and local government employees, and other stakeholders can use the Framework’s tools to spark conversations and align efforts.

How can I get involved?
