MMHA Everyone’s Business campaign – Independent Evaluation Report launches today and funding announcement!

Has the MMHA Everyone’s Business campaign* made a difference and how? Where should the campaign put its energy going forward? How do we collectively maintain the pressure to ensure all women and families urgently receive the right perinatal mental health care at the right time?

An Independent Evaluation Report of the MMHA Everyone’s Business campaign, launching today, addresses these, and other, questions – showing the substantial impact the campaign has had; the reasons for the impact, and where the campaign will need to focus in the future.

The report is expected to be useful to all organisations and individuals involved in maternal mental health: having a collective understanding of what has helped to drive the change to date, as well as potential next steps, will be crucial as we continue to push for the ongoing changes urgently called for.

Please help us to disseminate the report’s key findings as widely as possible:
