I am so excited to announce the First Annual Climb out of the Darkness for the Jersey Shore Area, benefiting Postpartum Support International New Jersey Chapter, will be on Saturday, September 7, 2019 at 10am at 4th Street Park in Ship Bottom, LBI, NJ. This event will be hosted by Postpartum to Powerful (Formerly Miindful Mama) as you know the mission is to help Moms/Birth Parents who have experienced PMADs transform from Postpartum to Powerful.
This year, Team Jersey Shore is raising money for PSI New Jersey, which means 100% of the funds raised by you will stay within the state to help build resources, train providers and support new parents in our local area!
Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders happen to ONE MILLION WOMEN in the US alone each year. Unfortunately, this cause receives very little support, yet these illnesses can have a lifelong impact on the health of both mother and child if untreated, and only 15% of moms get treated.
Postpartum Support International is a registered 501©3 nonprofit organization that is laser-focused on pregnancy and postpartum mental health. We have three key focus areas: raising awareness, providing direct support to pregnant and postpartum families, and training professionals and support group leaders. Your participation means that more parents will get the information and support they need, and healthcare providers will get information that is critical to identifying perinatal mood disorders of all types.
You are not alone. You are not to blame. With help, you will be well.
If you or someone you know is suffering, PSI can help:
Call 1.800.994.4773 or Text 503.894.9453
Postpartum Support International’s Climb Out of the Darkness is the world’s largest event for raising awareness of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, while raising money and building community.
The event will include gentle yoga classes, meditations, and speakers about all thing’s motherhood. We will have local businesses owned by Moms represented to offer their products and services to the Maternal Community. There will be activities specifically for children as well. The goal of this event is to come together as a collective of Mothers and those who support them to raise awareness and create connections amongst the community.
There will be raffles and giveaways the day of the event as well!
