Postpartum Progress’ Climb Out of the Darkness™ is the world’s largest event raising awareness of maternal mental illnesses like postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety & OCD, postpartum PTSD, postpartum psychosis, postpartum bipolar disorder, and pregnancy depression and anxiety. Climb Out is held on or near the longest day of the year annually to help shine the most light on perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. The event features mothers and others across the globe joining together to climb mountains and hike trails to represent their symbolic rise out of the darkness of maternal mental illness and into the light of hope and recovery. Funds raised support the 501c3 organization Postpartum Progress (http://postpartumprogress.org) We can’t wait for Climb Out of the Darkness 2015, to be held Saturday, June 20th. Mark your calendars!
The Climb will be held at 10:00 am at Cochran Shoals Park at Columns Drive Trail Head. This is a flat, gravel, 3 mile trail along the Chattahoochee River. It is easy with strollers and families with kids of all ages. If you don't have a national park parking pass, then there is a $3 parking fee.
