Our Congress has listened and responded accordingly!  Efforts from advocates for maternal mental health around the country are paying off.

The 1 in 7 MATTERS.  Moms and mental health and generational effects of untreated mental illness are important!  Women who have died and families who have suffered from wondering WHY matter. 

I had the honor of advocating with a group committed to this cause up in D.C. this past May.  The personal stories, statistics and education shared during the MANY steps walked seem to have made impact.

Know today that significant and positive changes are taking place for growing families through this groundbreaking bipartisan decision.
