Our Programs

Hospital Outreach program

Pregnant Women and new mothers: Schedule talks with pregnant women and new mothers in the hospitals to inform them on the need to take care of their mental well-being while creating awareness of the maternal mental illnesses and informing them where to seek medical help should they need it.

Health Professionals: Offer trainings to a wide range of health care professionals to increase maternal mental illness screening, referral and treatment rates.

Recovery/ Counselling Program

Linking persons suffering or suspected to be suffering from a maternal mental illness to organizations that offer counselling services and/or mental health care professionals for further examination and treatment.

In the near future we will set up a counselling center where we can offer the counseling services.

We will also provide a support line open to the community through which anyone can receive counselling services or help.

Policy and Advocacy Program

Support formulation, revision and implementation of progressive policies, legal and institutional frameworks as well as provide input into critical conversations or matters surrounding maternal mental health.

Public Awareness Program

Facilitate public events, activities and platforms through which information on maternal mental health can be shared.

Support Groups Program

Form support groups where mothers can go for guidance, support and help. The groups will accord mothers an opportunity to be in a group of other mothers or fathers where they can share experiences and find support.
