Prioritizing Moms’ Well Being: How Philanthropy Can Support Maternal Mental Health (2024)

Mindful Philanthropy’s most recent funder guidance, Prioritizing Moms’ Well Being: How Philanthropy Can Support Maternal Mental Health, explores practical opportunities to support working women within the existing system while also advocating for philanthropy to pursue bold initiatives that can transform the system for lasting impact on the lives of women in the workforce.

One in five mothers face mental health challenges during pregnancy and postpartum, a silent crisis with lasting consequences for both mother and child. Philanthropic support in this issue area deserves greater attention due to its far-reaching impacts on mothers, children, families, and communities, both in the near and long-term.

Our guidance explores the unique mental health experiences of mothers across the reproductive years, and presents opportunities for philanthropy to invest in the most promising and practical solutions to drive systemic change in support of new moms and their families.
