Climb Out Of The Darkness

Why Should I Support This Cause?
Because more women will suffer from postpartum depression and related illnesses in a year than the combined number of new cases for men and women of tuberculosis, leukemia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, lupus, and epilepsy.
Because only 15% of the nearly 1 million women who get these illnesses in the US alone each year ever get treated.
Because suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death in the first year postpartum.
Because there’s very little funding to raise awareness and reduce stigma of maternal mental illness.
