Perinatal Mental Health Alliance of NL exists to promote and support the mental health needs of individuals and families from conception through the early years, through collaboration and advocacy, working towards transformative systemic change.
Over the past few years there has been a growing interest in perinatal mental health in our province. The Perinatal Mental Health Alliance of Newfoundland and Labrador (PMHANL) was created by community-university partners of agencies, educators, health and social care professionals, and government leaders who want to address the gaps in programs, supports and services for mothers, infants and families. The Alliance aims to form new bridges and bring forward a unified response to a growing public health concern that can affect generations.
