Climb Out of the Darkness is the annual awareness raising and fundraising event for Postpartum Progress, a nonprofit focused on supporting pregnant and new moms with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders like postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, postpartum OCD, postpartum psychosis and pregnancy depression. Also, Climb Out of the Darkness kicks ass. Just so you know.
Help us raise money so that we can continue to raise awareness of how women are devastated by perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, make sure women know what they need to know about PPD, eliminate stigma and support the mamas who need it! Let's help every family have a strong start!
Funds raised this year will go toward the development of a mobile app that supports moms through PPD & related illnesses, create a video PSA, get comprehensive educational materials in the hands of providers across the country, and expand Postpartum Progress' online platform to include a Spanish version.
We'll be climbing the steps of Mt. Bonnell on June 21, 2014 at 9am sharp-we'd love for you to join us!
