Plum Organics and 2020 Mom Partner to Drive Change in Mental Health Care for Moms

Leading organic baby food company partners with nonprofit organization to help provide resources and close gaps in maternal mental health care for moms

By Girl Power News , in News , at November 10, 2022

According to 2020 Mom, more than 600,000 mothers will suffer from a maternal mental health (MMH) disorder in the U.S. every year1. Untreated MMH disorders can have devastating impacts on not only a mother’s health and functioning, but on their baby’s health and development, and overall family stability.

Plum Organics and 2020 Mom will produce a first-of-its-kind national map shedding light on the maternal mental health provider workforce, including community-based organizations and maternal mental health behavior providers. This proprietary data will serve as a foundation to understanding maternal support in the U.S., or lack thereof, and the key areas where both organizations can work to ameliorate the current state of maternal support systems. Once complete, these findings will be available on both the Plum Organics and 2020 Mom websites.

“We are thrilled to partner with a brand like Plum Organics, whose mission and values align perfectly with our organization,” says Joy Burkhard, Founder and Executive Director of 2020 Mom. “Even in today’s world of increasing mental health awareness mothers frequently feel alone and without a village of support. With the support and partnership of Plum Organics we are executing this ground-breaking research to identify gaps and solutions to build this very village.”
