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.
As many of you know I struggled with Postpartum Anxiety after Lucy was born. In addition to raising funds for PostpartumProgress.com, a website that helped me tremendously, I also want to raise awareness for other perenial mood disorders and their difference from Postpartum Depression. Please join us in the Climb Salt Lake City, Saturday, June 20th!
