- Speak Up When You’re Down-Perinatal Depression Awareness
CalSPAC sponsored Assembly Concurrent Resolution 105 in 2010 which designated the month of May each year in California as Perinatal Depression Awareness Month. The month of May was selected to coincide with Mother’s Day. In 2011, CalSPAC co-sponsored Assembly Concurrent Resolution 53, the Kelly Abraham Martinez Act with the Los Angeles County Perinatal Mental Health Task Force. This measure urged hospital providers, mental health care providers, health plans, and insurers to invest resources to educate women about perinatal depression risk factors and requested ahat a statewide network of stakeholders explore ways to assist with the development of perinatal depression prevention educational materials.
