The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) officially launched the National Maternal Mental Health Hotline on Mother’s Day, May 8, 2022 and we are asking for your help to promote the service widely to families and communities with whom you work and others who may find it helpful.
Available 24/7, the National Maternal Mental Health Hotline provides free, confidential support, resources, and referrals from professional counselors to pregnant and postpartum individuals facing mental health challenges. Counselors offer support in English and Spanish and interpreter services are available in 60 additional languages.
In a press release announcing the hotline, HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra said, “This new Maternal Mental Health Hotline will not only advance our priorities of tackling the nation’s mental health crisis, but also support our efforts to ensure healthy pregnancies and support new parents.”
We encourage you to share this new resource on social media and other marketing channels. HRSA provides promotional materials for you to use, including social media graphics, printable wallet cards, and newsletter copy. These materials are also available in Spanish.
If you have any questions about the hotline service please see our online Frequently Asked Questions, also available in Spanish, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. This email address should not be distributed to help-seekers. It will not connect anyone to the 24/7 hotline service. It is for informational questions only.
We are grateful for your partnership as we provide this valuable new service to pregnant and postpartum families who need support, understanding, and resources.
