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, and postpartum psychosis. As a survivor, I know how important it is for people to know about these illnesses. Mental illness is still so stigmatized that it can be hard for sufferers to reach out for help. I want to help change that.
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 20, 3:00 pm. Mark your calendars!
