Join the Perinatal Mental Health Coalition of Virginia
The Perinatal Mental Health Coalition of Virginia (PMHCVa) is one of our efforts to enhance perinatal mental health across the Commonwealth. The PMHCVa gathers perinatal workers to spread education and awareness of PMADs and create community-based solutions to enhance perinatal mental wellness and reduce the harmful effects of perinatal mental health issues on individuals, families, and communities.

At least 1 in 5 people giving birth will struggle with anxiety or depression while pregnant or within a year after giving birth.

You are not to blame. You are not alone. 

Resources for Families

The #1 complication of pregnancy and childbirth is Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders (PMADs)–most commonly, anxiety and depression.

The good news is PMADs are temporary and can be treated with a combination of self-care, social support, talk therapy, and medication if necessary.

Resources for Healthcare & Mental Health Providers

PSVa works with medical and mental health professionals across the state of Virginia to provide training in understanding and screening of PMADs, and to create partnerships for referral to those who need treatment.

Postpartum Support Virginia’s MISSION is to help new and expectant mothers and their families overcome anxiety, depression, and other perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs).
