On June 18th, I, along with many women and those who love them, will be walking the Bicentennial Greenway as a participant of Climb Out of the Darkness® 2016. The Climb symbolizes the emergence from what is often a dark and harrowing experience for postpartum mothers. Nearly one million women have struggled through a maternal mental illness yet the stigma attached to these conditions prevents many from seeking much needed treatment. It is our hope that participation in Climb Out of the Darkness® will shed light on these often overlooked illnesses as well as raise support for Postpartum Progess, an organization dedicated to creating healthier families.
Can't wait to see you there!
