Resource directory listing request

Thank you for your interest in the Florida Maternal Mental Health Collaborative's Resource Directory. We know that one of the largest barriers to receiving care for perinatal mental health issues in Florida is the lack of access to or knowledge of trusted and well-trained providers. This directory is the first step in breaking that barrier.

The Florida MMH Collaborative is glad you are interested in being listed and excited and thankful for the work you and your organization do for women and families in Florida!

We ask you to please complete the following form for your organization, support group or your own private practice. Required fields are those that will show in the search plus those needed to accurately review and catalogue your listing. Thank you for your help in growing this vitally important resource.
