WHO IS THE RED DEER MATERNAL MENTAL HEALTH STEERING COMMITTEE?
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 of the following organizations:
Red Deer Native Friendship Society, Central Alberta Youth Unlimited, Red Deer College, Red Deer Doula Association, Night Owl Doula, Mommy Connections, Sarah Williams Doula, Pregnancy Care, Primary Care Network, Cara McGinnis Counselling, Alberta Health Services, Crowning Achievements, Family Services of Central Alberta, Turning Point and local mom's.
