What is my Brain & My Baby?

Support, at no cost, for individuals experiencing maternal mental health conditions

How the Program Works

My Brain & My Baby is designed to provide individual and group therapy, support and resources to referred individuals to the program.

Therapy via Telemedicine

Once referred by a medical provider, we seek to serve as a bridge for patients who face long wait times between their identification of a maternal mental health condition and their first therapy appointment by providing free individual and/or group therapy.

What are Maternal Health Conditions?

Maternal mental health (MMH) conditions are also referred to as perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs), postpartum depression, antenatal depression and anxiety, maternal mental health disorders and much more.

MMH conditions are incredibly common but also preventable and treatable.

MMH conditions encompass depression, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, psychosis and substance use disorders that start from conception all the way through the first year postpartum. MMH conditions are caused by a combination of changes in biology, psychology and the environment.

Not only are they incredibly common, but they are preventable and treatable. There are several systemic issues for why they go widely untreated, including social and cultural stigma, socioeconomic barriers, and lack of access and biases in systems. My Brain & My Baby aims to provide education about MMH for both families and providers, offer free therapy over telemedicine, and continue to build relationships with existing agencies to promote more access to those in need.
