THE STORY:

Saturday, June 24th at 10:00 a.m. at Central Park in Cumming. The address is: 2300 Keith Bridge Rd. Cumming, GA 30040

We will walk around a paved path, so strollers and wheelchairs are welcome. We will have a group picnic afterwards, so please bring a sack lunch for you and your family.

Hi everyone, my name is Amy. I am a mother of two, a maternal mental health advocate and a board member of Georgia's PSI chapter. I'm so excited and honored to be leading a Climb this year! I am a survivor of postpartum depression (PPD) and anxiety (PPA), as well as postpartum OCD and postpartum post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I suffered greatly with PTSD due to the trauma and complications from the delivery of our first child, and with the other disorders in some combination with both pregnancies.

After several years of suffering with undiagnosed perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs), I dove headfirst into figuring out what was wrong with me. I’ve spent the last four years learning everything I can about PMADs and have become a maternal mental health advocate in my community. I work to educate moms and providers about the risk factors and symptoms of PMADs, as well as how common and treatable they are.

By leading a Climb this year I hope to shed light on the fact that PPD is the #1 complication after childbirth, and 1 in 7 mothers will suffer with a PMAD. I’m also looking forward to raising funds for our PSI-GA chapter. The great news is that 100% of what my team raises (minus Crowdrise’s administrative fee), goes directly to our state chapter and will be used in part to provide trainings, workshops and other educational materials for the moms and providers of our state.

Please consider joining my team for this Climb on Saturday, June 24th at 10:00 at Central Park in Cumming, GA. We will walk around the paved walking path, so strollers and wheelchairs are welcome. There will be a few prize giveaways for moms, dads and kids, as well as a group picnic after the Climb, so please bring a sack lunch for you and your family.

**Please consider making a donation to my team. No amount is too small and is completely tax deductible. Thank you for your support as we, “Climb out of the Darkness”.   

Kindest regards - Amy

     

Why I Climb 

I climb because IT didn’t win!

I climb because I was given a second chance.

I climb for the mommas & babies who didn’t get one.

I climb because hope & purpose have replaced emptiness & fear.

I climb because being a mom is hard, but it’s also my greatest reward!

I climb because supermom is a myth, and I am a good enough mom.

I climb because now I love being a mom when I once resented it.

I climb because once I didn’t have the strength or the courage.

I climb because my darkness has been defeated!

I climb because I won!
