Legislative and Policy Sub-Committee

The Legislative and Policy Sub-Committee assists the Commission with policy planning and advocacy. This sub-committee aims to help those with lived experience and their loved ones advocate for improved perinatal mental health outcomes in Massachusetts.

Advocacy is a core component of improving perinatal mental health in Massachusetts. Through advocacy, we can all influence legislation by making our voices heard. The Commission supports the voices of mothers, fathers, and families that have overcome postpartum depression. The Legislative and Policy Committee continues to advocate for improved perinatal mental health and hopes you will join us!
