To mark National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shared new resources as part of its Hear Her campaign, which seeks to raise awareness of potentially life-threatening warning signs during and after pregnancy and improve communication between patients and their health care providers. The resources include posters and palm cards in multiple languages, PSAs and website content.

In this blog, Priya Bathija, AHA’s vice president of strategic initiatives, discusses how listening and acting quickly can save lives, with hospitals and health systems working to create environments where women are encouraged to speak out and are included as respected members of their care team.
