The Maternal Mental Health Leadership Alliance (MMHLA) has named Ariel Gonzalez, principal, to their Board of Directors.

In his role, Ariel will provide leadership to MMHLA as they raise awareness about maternal mental health (MHH) conditions, reducing their stigma and improving health outcomes for mothers and babies. He will draw upon his experience in the mental health and maternal health arenas from his past leadership with the American Psychiatric Association and the March of Dimes.
