Minding me: World Maternal Mental Health Day Campaign Wed 3rd May 2023

By 28th April 2023No Comments

World Maternal Mental Health Day takes place on Wednesday, May 3 next. This is an international campaign dedicated to talking about mental health problems during and up to one year after pregnancy.

It’s all about raising public and professional awareness of maternal mental health difficulties, advocating for women affected, changing attitudes, and empowering women and families by helping them to access the information, care, and support they need to recover.

A partner pack has been produced by Minding Me Dublin South, Kildare and West Wicklow to help promote the 2023 campaign.

It outlines the key objectives which are:

  • Talk: To encourage conversations about maternal mental health, and in the process
    reduce stigma.
  •  Connect: To engage with women and their families to raise awareness of maternal
    mental health.
  • Empower: To empower women to look after their mental health in pregnancy
    and beyond by connecting women and families with information, care and
    support they need.

The key campaign messages are:

  • Let’s Break the Silence — It’s time to start a conversation about maternal
    mental health.
  •  Up to one in five — Maternal mental health issues are common and can affect
    up to one in five women.
  •  Help is available — There are supports and services that can help.

The partner pack states: “Maternal mental health is everybody’s business, and we want to provide connection, comfort and support to those who are living with maternal mental health difficulties.”

West Be Well will support the campaign by sharing its key messages on our social media channels throughout the week of May 1-7.
