Together, We Can Deliver Better Mental Health Care Before, During and After Pregnancy.

At Project TEACH, our goal is to ensure maternal health clinicians feel confident offering the right mental health interventions to patients.

Our no-cost consultations and trainings can help you identify mild-to-moderate mental health concerns earlier in the mother's journey.

Project TEACH is here to help.

Maternal anxiety, depression and mood disorders can be easy to miss. Project TEACH can help you recognize the signs and feel more confident taking the right steps to get your patients the support they need.

What if it goes beyond the “Baby Blues?”

1 in 5 women will experience MMH conditions during pregnancy or first year following pregnancy

What if it's not just hormones?

27% of women enter pregnancy with anxiety or depression

What if it's more than sleep deprivation?

75% of women who experience MMH symptoms go untreated

What if it won't go away on its own?

Suicide and overdose are the leading causes of death in the first year postpartum, with 100% of these deaths deemed preventable
