Due to the stigma, inadequate awareness, lack of early assessment and intervention as well as limited support and resources surrounding perinatal mental wellbeing, only about 1 in 7 individuals experiencing a mental illness during the perinatal period receive professional treatment. Blues and Beyond is an all-encompassing platform, providing resources, education, outreach, helplines and referrals to new and expecting parents. This organization aims to build a platform solely dedicated to providing easily accessible resources, support and care to a population who's mental well-being is frequently overlooked. No parent should feel alone, and no child should be at risk! We offer support surrounding all things pregnancy, mental health, parenting and family.
In order to continue offering this support for free, to families across Canada, we rely on funding from the government. In the meantime, your support is much needed and very appreciated. All of the donations will go towards running the online platform, support line as well as marketing to promote this amazing service to ensure every parent in need has access to support. Thank you for your generosity!
