Canadian Perinatal Mental
Calling for a national strategy for perinatal mental health
What is the CPMHC ?
The Canadian Perinatal Mental Health Collaborative (CPMHC) is a non profit organization working to improve perinatal mental health care in Canada through advocacy, research, education, and public awareness. The perinatal period is the time surrounding conception to one year postpartum and beyond.
We are grateful to live and work on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg. The Anishinaabeg include the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Pottawatomi nations, collectively known as the Three Fires Confederacy.
