It is our vision to ensure the best beginning for every new mother and her child.
Mother’s mental health matters to the development of strong and healthy communities.
The Red Deer Maternal Mental Health Steering Committee intends on utilizing best practice when working with women of child bearing years through the perinatal period in the years to come. The main objective of our coalition is to increase the communities’ knowledge around the importance of discussing maternal mental health, while simultaneously decreasing the stigma present around women struggling to manage their mental health.
Our committee is composed of representatives from organizations including, but not limited to:
Alberta Health Services, Red Deer Polytechnic, Pregnancy Care, Primary Care Network, Turning Point, McMan Youth and Family Resources, Mountain View Family Resource Network, Family Services of Central Alberta, as well as local moms and volunteers.
