dc.description.abstract The Perinatal Mental Health Project (PMHP) addresses mental illness among pregnant and postnatal women and girls. The aim of PMHP is to ensure all women in South Africa have access to mental health care during and after pregnancy, as a routine part of their health care. Maternal mental illnesses, particularly common mental disorders such as depression and anxiety, are very common in low-income and informal settings. While maternal mental illness affects 10% to 15% of women in developed countries, prevalence is almost 40% in South Africa. Most of the women in South Africa who experience maternal mental illness are poor, from disadvantaged communities who face many challenges in accessing health services and treatment. en_ZA
