we are dedicated to supporting the mental health of women as she steps into her power and creates her own rules in life.
SeekHer Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to supporting the mental health of women in her life’s journey. We award scholarship & grant opportunities to individuals, entrepreneurs, and organizations working to bridge the gap of women’s mental health in their communities and beyond. Through our donor- and sponsor-based projects, we’re here to help women recognize her identity is not dependent on the impossible standards society has defined for her —
So she can seek within and reclaim her voice.
Across the globe, women are nearly twice as likely as men to suffer from depression, anxiety, and other mental health disorders. From biology to socially-constructed cultural norms, gender disparities play a strong role in their development and often manifest during critical seasons of transformation and change.
Our current projects focus on:
Women’s Body Image
The diet & fitness industries have led women to believe their physical attributes are never enough. Over 90% are insecure about their bodies and appearance, leaving young women more susceptible to disordered eating and eating disorders, which has the highest mortality rate of all mental disorders. This widespread perception of inadequacy and dangerous cultural narrative must be stopped.
POSTPARTUM mental health
The transformation that a woman’s body undergoes while creating a human being impacts not only her body, but also her heart and mind. 1 in 7 new moms experience postpartum depression, with even fewer seeking the help and support they need to prepare for their earliest, most vulnerable days after childbirth. Every woman deserves access to tools and resources so they can thrive through their journey of motherhood.
