About SPANS:

Society for Pre and Post Natal Services (SPANS)’s mission is to be strategically positioned and to provide an effective clinical practice of family therapy/counselling, psychological support, research and education, thereby not only to saving lives, but to health-care utilization, quality of care and improving quality of life locally, nationally, regionally and globally.


Summary of relevant work:

Sound mental health and social well-being are important factors enabling people to live useful lives, contribute actively to community living, maintain, plan and care for their families. Maternal mental health is a widespread public health issue that impacts the wellbeing, emotional, the psychological balance, the attitudes and livelihood of many mothers making coping with the many tasks of child care, their infants and their families difficult. In order for the baby to be properly cared for, the baby needs a physically, emotionally, psychologically and mentally capable mother, in addition to a supportive environment provided by the father and extended family. This may improve not only their own mental wellbeing, but also provides better conditions for the optimal development of their babies.

SPANS, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), aims to realise the global goal of reducing by one-third premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment and promote mental health and wellbeing by 2030. SPANS also aims to engage with mothers-to-be and fathers-to-be to empower them, provide support and practical help on child development in a psychologically, therapeutic manner.
