Tomorrow is the day!!!
June 17, 2016
Climb Out of the Darkness, the world’s largest event raising awareness of maternal mental illnesses like postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety & OCD, postpartum PTSD, postpartum psychosis, bipolar/peripartum onset, and pregnancy depression and anxiety. Climb Out of the Darkness 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. This year it will be held on Saturday, June 18th.
Where Does The Money Go?
* Free educational materials distributed upon request to obstetrician, therapy, psychiatry, support groups and pediatrician offices
* Programs like our award-winning blog, which had more than 1.6 million pageviews in 2014, and our private support forum for struggling moms, which supports more than 2,100 mothers around the world
* Annual Warrior Mom™ Conference which prepares survivors of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders to become local peer advocates for struggling moms in their own communities and to raise awareness
* Advocacy for better support, less stigma and increased services for perinatal mood and anxiety disorders
That being said, I have officially launched our official Climb Out Of The Darkness 2016 Facebook group page for Team Missouri - Kansas City! Please share and help promote both the Fundraiser page and Facebook group page and encourage people to join us in the climb.
Please remember that there is NO COST to participate, but every little donation to the fundraiser definitely helps to support the cause and is greatly appreciated!
