‘Supporting Families: Maternal Mental Health’


The New Brunswick Association of Family Resource Centers will be hosting a conference on October 5, 2023, in Fredericton, NB, with a focus on Maternal Mental Health. 


Pregnancy is the start of a new phase in a new mom’s life.  It comes with joy and excitement, but it can also come with worry and concerns.  Pregnancy affects a person physically and emotionally. 

This conference will bring together service providers and community stakeholders interested in supporting a family’s maternal mental health.  Over the course of the one day, participants will further their knowledge about maternal resources and supports available in New Brunswick. 

Please join us to hear from local, provincial and community members throughout the day and share your own work in this area.
