Join NCMMH in D.C. to Advocate for moms.

May 17-18, 2017

REGISTRATION Has CLOSED. But please, consider reaching out to your representatives by sending this ready made letter. It takes just 2 minutes.

Join advocates and survivors from across the country this May in Washington D.C to let congress know that mothers matter and need support.

  • Meet your local representatives and share your story to give a face to maternal mental health complications and ask congress to ensure maternal mental health initiatives receive the funding they desperately need.
  • Advocacy Days 2017 will include a Networking Luncheon, Congressional Briefing, and Reception on May 17th and congressional meetings on May 18th.

Registration Charges

We encourage all advocates not to miss the Networking Luncheon on May 17 but we recognize some will be traveling so we are offering two advocacy days registration packages, one that doesn't include the luncheon on Wednesday May 17.

  • $75 Full Two Days
  • $60 Two Days without the Networking Luncheon
LAST YEAR WE VISITED 47 OFFICES (BOTH HOUSE AND SENATE) AND GOT 8 CO-SPONSORS FOR THE "BRINGING PPD OUT OF THE SHADOWS ACT OF 2015" WHICH WAS SIGNED INTO LAW BY PRESIDENT OBAMA IN THE 21ST CENTURY CURES ACT IN DECEMBER 2016. THIS YEAR'S CONGRESSIONAL ASK WILL BE RELATING TO FUNDING POSTPARTUM PROGRAMS.
