New Program: Perinatal Mental Health of Black Canadian Women Phone Peer Support

The Perinatal Mental Health (PMH) Programs support new parents through their journey which can include challenges with depression, anxiety, feeling overwhelmed, guilt, isolation, and the stigma associated with struggling with your mental health. At Families Matter we have a program specifically designed to address disparities and unmet needs within the Black communities of Alberta.

This program serves:

•     A Black pre or post-natal parent of a child ages 0-24 months living in Alberta
•     Weekly 1hr phone calls with a trained Black Peer Supporter

If you’d like more information, call Intake at 403.205.5180 (SE) or 403.205.5194 (NE). Once the intake is complete, triage occurs every week where the services that are best suited to your needs will be assessed and you will be contacted when the program is available.

All of our supports are available year-round. It is never too late, or too early to ask for help.
