Mental Health

Reducing mental health in our communities who are victims of social injustice environment, violence, racism and trauma is essential.

The Program focused on the connection between behaviors and the health and well-being of the body, mind and spirit. 

CHWCMR Caminando con Mamá is a Community Health Worker-led, train-the-trainer program that will aid 320 families over 3 years. It will bring socio-emotional support, knowledge about maternal mental health, dissolution of mental stigma, and connection to resources. Parents deserve mental health support during a major life event such as giving birth. Caring for a newborn is difficult unto itself - postpartum depression adds levels of difficulty no one should face alone. Studies show the connections between parental mental health, parent-child bonding, and health outcomes for children. We should walk this journey together.
