Our vision

To see all women across the UK get consistent, accessible and quality care and support for their mental health during pregnancy and in the year after giving birth.

What we do

We achieve change by bringing the sector together to speak with one voice, campaigning for change and supporting local systems to improve perinatal mental health care.

Who we are

The Maternal Mental Health Alliance (MMHA) is a coalition of over 90 UK organisations. This includes professional bodies such as Royal Colleges and organisations that represent, or provide care and support to, parents and families. We work across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Our history

The MMHA was founded in 2011 by organisations set up by people with lived experience, clinicians, academics and voluntary and community sector organisations coming together with a shared determination to improve care and support for women in the perinatal period.
