Maternal Mental Health

PSI Utah Resources -- Likely the most comprehensive resource page for maternal mental health in Utah. Includes hotlines/warmlines, treatment facilities, childcare servicessupport groups, and resources for fathers, adoptions, and doulas among others. This website also provides the contact information (text, call, or email) PSI Coordinators who are volunteers that offer free caring and informed support and resources to moms and their families. They also provide information and resources for area providers who are caring for pregnant and postpartum families. 

The Emily Effect -- An organization supporting maternal mental health. From their website: "Emily was diagnosed and treated for postpartum depression and anxiety. She was treated for the illness for several months. During the process we found pockets of very good help, but as a whole the journey was frustrating and the resources seemed disjointed. In short, there were many times I felt like we had exhausted every one of our options and I simply didn’t have anywhere else to turn. Thus, we have created this foundation and website to raise awareness and coordinate local resources for maternal mental health."

Huntsman Mental Health Institute (HMHI) -- HMHI offers a NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) Mothers Support Group and a free Postpartum Support Group.

Transgender Pregnancy: Moving Past Misconceptions -- For the health and well-being of transgender parents-to-be and their families, it’s important to understand where we’ve been — and where we need to go.
