Virtual Congressional Briefing via Zoom Webinars

Hosted By: Shades of Blue Project

Co-Hosted By: Black Mamas Matter Alliance, 2020 Mom, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, National Alliance on Mental Illness, and the American Psychological Association

Briefing Description: Statistics show that Black women in the U.S. are 3x – 5x as likely to die from a pregnancy-related causes than their white counterparts. Missing from the equation is how these same women experience a maternal mental health complication after their adverse maternal outcome. This briefing will explore the perspectives/experiences of Black women to reduce these adverse mental health outcomes.
