OutReach - 31 August 2020 - Mead Johnson Nutrition (MJN) Hong Kong's social
impact program to combat postpartum depression, was recognized at Marketing
Magazine's PR
Awards 2020, receiving the GOLD award in 'The Best Use of
Content' category, and a Bronze award in the 'Best PR Campaign -- Corporate
Social Responsibility' category.

Launched in 2019, the award-winning campaign 'Happy mom,
Healthy baby' is a territory-wide movement to stop the silent struggle of
postpartum depression and support the emotional wellbeing of postpartum women. With
the extensive support of healthcare professionals specializing in psychiatry
and psychology, social workers, registered nurses and midwives, MJN provides substantial
support and a comprehensive platform to empower postpartum women and their
families to embrace behavioural and perception changes towards postpartum

"We exist to protect, heal and nurture in the relentless
pursuit of a cleaner and healthier world. In line with Mead Johnson Nutrition's
brand mission of empowering mothers to nourish their child for the best start
in life, we have been working closely with healthcare experts to provide
professional support on new mothers' wellbeing, from their nutrition needs,
physical health, to emotional wellness," said Mr. Pankaj Agarwal, General
Manager Hong Kong & Taiwan, Health. "It's an honour to be recognised for
our ongoing efforts to make a positive difference in the community. We are
committed to becoming an influential leader by building a more caring and
inclusive community through meaningful social impact programs."

Every one in ten postpartum women in Hong Kong suffer from
postpartum depression[1]
and this can be a worrying topic for mothers. To turn the complex medical
information into friendly, light and interactive message that resonates with
mothers, the campaign featured an authentic story about a celebrity combating
postpartum mood swings. With its extensive healthcare professionals' network, MJN
successfully established a powerful and resourceful education portal and self-help tools for preventing and combating postpartum

Early intervention is critical for identifying and treating
postpartum depression. To build a stronger supporting network that facilitates
early intervention, MJN initiated a partnership with the Midwives and
Maternal-Child Caregivers Association to provide training workshops for
postnatal caregivers to enhance their skills in identifying mothers with
potential mental risk. A pilot programme has also been initiated to support 100
postpartum mothers with regular calls and mental advice from a registered nurse
in the first 100 days after their childbirth.

Mr. Pankaj Agarwal added, "Postpartum Depression can be a
silent struggle, and this campaign is an important step to alert everyone in
the community to play their part and take immediate action to stop that
struggle from occurring."
