Who We Are

Calmind Foundation is a registered not for profit organization that promotes maternal mental health.

We run programmes, projects and campaigns that create awareness of maternal mental health, give information on where those suffering from a maternal mental illness can access services and advocate for policies, legal and institutional frameworks and research that promote maternal mental health.

We also work towards providing solutions for challenges women face that increase their chances of suffering from a maternal mental condition e.g. unemployment as a way of preventing and/ or reducing prevalence of maternal mental illnesses.
