Postpartum common mental disorders are prevalent among women in Ethiopia. Data on associated factors are limited. This population-based study assessed mental health among 1294 nonpregnant, postpartum women in Amhara region. Poor health of the last delivered child and inequitable gender attitudes were associated with poor mental health among other factors. Social support from female friends was strongly protective. Community mental health services could strengthen social support between female friends with education and support group facilitation by health extension workers.
