Governor proclaims May 1 - 7 Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week

On May 2nd, the Colorado State Legislature passed Senate Joint Resolution 17-037 designating this first week of May as Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week. The resolution was co-sponsored by Senator Moreno and Representative Dafna Michaelson Jenet. It acknowledges the importance of screening for maternal mental health disorders, including funding for expanded screening for mothers with Medicaid to three times per year, which is in the version of the Long Bill approved by the House and the Senate. It also celebrates the work of our many great partners here in Colorado who are champions for the mental wellness of moms to help ensure they and their babies can thrive.
