HRSA’s National Maternal Mental Health Hotline
HRSA recently celebrated the first anniversary of the National Maternal Mental Health Hotline. Since its launch on Mother’s Day 2022, the Hotline’s professional counselors have provided emotional support, resources, and referrals to almost 12,000 pregnant and postpartum individuals who struggled with mental health concerns, and their loved ones.
HRSA is also introducing an updated toll-free number for the Hotline: 1-833-TLC-MAMA (1 833-852-6262). The former number (1-833-9-HELP-4-MOMS or 1-833-943-5746) will continue to work for another year.
The National Maternal Mental Health Hotline provides 24/7, free, confidential emotional support, resources, and referrals before, during, and after pregnancy. The Hotline is accessible by phone or test in English and Spanish and offers interpreter services in more than 60 languages. Pregnant and postpartum individuals and their loved ones can get the help and resources they need when they need it.
