Seleni Institute is a global nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the emotional health of individuals and families during the family building years in order to unlock the potential of future generations.
Millions of women struggle with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, yet appropriate care is often prohibitively expensive, difficult to find and not rooted in the latest research. Additionally, women face other barriers to treatment, such as stigma and lack of mental health awareness. Untreated, these mental health issues can negatively impact the mother, the family and children – including their cognitive, emotional and social development.
There is a gap in knowledge and understanding of emotional health and its impact on individuals and their families. At Seleni, they recognize that many factors affect emotional health and see an opportunity to close this gap – changing the way we treat emotional health both for our generation and future generations.
