In February of 2017, three perinatal professionals came together to create an organization for women of color run by women of color to provide support, advocacy, information, and resources around perinatal mental health. We saw a need for a resource built and held by communities of color, and we created the PMHA-WOC to support women, families, and professionals.
Rising Together Scholarship, a fund that will benefit organizations and individuals working with women of color around perinatal mental health. We believe that joining together as communities of women of color is a critical step in advancing our capacity to better serve women in our local areas who are in need of perinatal mental health services and resources.
Rising Together funds will be granted to organizations that serve women of color around perinatal mental health, as well as professionals of color who want to increase their capacity and skills around providing perinatal mental health support.
