My Red Tent

If a community cares about its children, it must cherish their mothers--John Bowlby

My Red Tent is a vehicle for matching charitable mental health clinicians in the United States, trained to meet the unique needs of perinatal women (pregnant or less than one year postpartum), with underserved women in the community needing assessment and treatment recommendations. The alliance is organized exclusively for charitable purposes under section 501 (c) (3) of the United States Department of The Treasury Internal Revenue Code, or corresponding section of any future federal tax code. Specifically, we aim to provide relief to a distressed and underprivileged female population, serve as strong advocates for women and infants everywhere, and increase the awareness surrounding perinatal mood and anxiety disorders in our society at large. These aims will be facilitated by fundraising activities, community advocacy, and providing safe places for women to gather for mutual support, as was portrayed in the novel The Red Tent by Anita Diamant.
