Equity, diversity and inclusion

Making change happen for everyone who experiences maternal mental health difficulties is our core purpose at the Maternal Mental Health Alliance (MMHA). We believe that all women should have equitable access to high-quality services and compassionate care that meets individual needs. This means that we champion the rights of all people who face discrimination during pregnancy and after birth, including people from racially minoritized communities, disabled people, LGBTQ+ people, and those experiencing multiple adversities such as poverty, addiction, homelessness, violence, abuse and exploitation.

As an organisation, the MMHA is committed to viewing everything we do through the lens of equity, diversity and inclusion. We are intentional about how we do this and how we make progress.

If you have any questions about the above, or about the work we are doing to address inequity in perinatal mental health, please contact us at info@maternalmentalhealthalliance.org.
