Founded in 2017, the Florida Maternal Mental Health Collaborative (FLMMHC) is a 501c3 non-profit. We are invested in our vision to ensure every woman in Florida and her family receives the help and support they need for optimal mental health and well-being. Approximately 1 in 5 women and 1 in 10 men will experience a mental health complication during the time of pregnancy or after delivery.
The FLMMHC hopes to assist providers in finding resources and education and help Moms and Dads find help in their communities.
The FLMMHC Workgroups are designed as focused collectives that address the four major areas in Perinatal Mental Health: Awareness, Clinical Practice, Policy, and Research. Read the latest from the Workgroups below!
