Native American and Indigenous
Perinatal Peer Support Services
WellMama was awarded a grant from Three Rivers Foundation to Advance Indigenous Maternal Mental Health.
We at WellMama are grateful and honored to have received a grant to support our Native American and Indigenous Outreach program.
The need for evidence-based perinatal mental health interventions that provides culturally relevant well-being, perspectives and practices is critical to improving maternal, child, and community outcomes for Indigenous peoples, and reducing health inequities. WellMama hopes to connect Native and Indigenous community members, maternal and child health professionals, intervention researchers, and a cultural consultants to bring this change for Indigenous families and future generations.
It is with this our hope and goal to collaborate and connect Native and Indigenous community members, with lived experience and/or perinatal professional experience, who can provide traditional peer support with culturally relevant well-being perspectives and practices, to aid in the perinatal mental health risk experienced by Indigenous women.
