In general approximately 1 in 5 women from all different backgrounds experience perinatal mental health difficulties – that is mental health challenges during the perinatal period which is defined as one year after the birth of a baby. However, for black women perinatal mental health difficulties often go unidentified, and thus untreated, placing them at a disadvantage when it comes to seeking professional help. For this year's Black Maternal Mental Health Week, Global Black Maternal Health is proud to support The Motherhood Group as they continue to raise awareness on black maternal mental health, with a focus on equity and inequality for black mothers.
