WHAT IS THE CPMHC?
Our mission at the CPMHC is to lobby the federal government to create a national perinatal mental health strategy that will provide direction, policy, and funding for improvements to perinatal mental health care including universal screening and timely access to treatment for all individuals during preconception, pregnancy and the postpartum periods.
Please watch our video compilation for our #NowMoreThanEver campaign featuring moms, mayors, provincial and federal politicians, actors (Juno Rinaldi, Sarah McVie, Jessica Holmes), all sharing why they believe Canada needs a national perinatal mental health strategy.
Welcome to the official site for the Canadian Perinatal Mental Health Collaborative! We are Canada’s first and only perinatal mental health advocacy organization calling on the federal government to enact a national perinatal mental health strategy. Our National Committee is comprised of numerous heath care practitioners, researchers, and individuals with lived experience representing all provinces and territories. Our Social Media Ambassadors are savvy individuals with lived experience who help us with our social media campaigns. We are working towards garnering a national perinatal mental health strategy that will leave no one behind. We want nothing less than universal screening and timely access to treatment for persons during the preconception, pregnancy and the postpartum periods.
