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 those who love them 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)
The Climb will take place at Alum Rock Park, San Jose on Saturday June 18th at 9am. We will meet at the parking lot by the Youth Science Institute and do a 2.5-mile loop hike. It will take around an hour to hike the loop trail. At the end we will have a family picnic near the playground, so feel free to bring the kids!

Hope to see you there!
