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 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. Funds raised support the 501c3 organization Postpartum Progress (http://postpartumprogress.org) We can’t wait for Climb Out of the Darkness 2015, to be held Saturday, June 20th. Mark your calendars!
Date: Saturday, June 20, 2015 @ 9am
Location: Algonkian Regional Park in Sterling, Virginia; specific meeting location and walking trail TBD. Information will be updated here.
Who: Anyone who has been effected by PPD. Kids are welcome too! This won't be a strenous or fast pace walk although, I would re cement wearing shoes that can get dirty and clothes that will be appropriate for the temperature. We will be on a trail in the woods so insect repellent is highly recommended! Bring a snack for your attendees and we will regroup at a picnic bench at the end.
