May is Maternal Mental Health Month & April 30 - May 6 is Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week
TheBlueDotProject will host the U.S.'s week long social media campaign Monday, April 30 through Friday, May 6 which will include World MMH Day on May 2nd.
This year's MMH Week 2018 will include:
A #RealMotherhood 5-Day Challenge
We will ask mothers across the country to get real about motherhood by posting photos and updating their social media status with images and posts that show the real face of motherhood. Images can be light-hearted or serious. They can be of meds you had to get on, dirty dishes overflowing out of your sink, going to work with baby vomit on your shirt, or stretched mark skin.
Daily social media messages and images
Images and posts will address popular myths of motherhood and how they specifically harm women suffering from an MMH disorder as well as keep all mothers judging themselves through an unrealistic lens.
Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month Took Kit
The toolkit will be available to download in late March and will help your efforts to raise awareness. The toolkit will include sample social media banners, cover photos, and a sample press release.
