Our impact in numbers

Maternal mental illness can be addressed:
it is predictable, identifiable, treatable and in many cases, preventable.

Maternal mental health interventions are critical not only because of the high level of need, but because of the preventative and protective impact they have on the social, economic, political and health inequalities faced by women. A significant body of evidence demonstrates the benefits for mother, child, family and society of integrating maternal mental health services into the primary care setting.

Ongoing monitoring and evaluation shows that problems relating to primary support, social environment and lifestyle transition are most commonly reported by distressed women during pregnancy.
