Let's show our support to women who have experienced or will experience Post Partum Depression! I am a survivor of post partum psychosis (a very rare form of PPD) & it is by far the scariest thing I have ever had to experience! I'll spare you the details but thankfully I had medical help & an extremely loving, supportive group of family and friends that were there to help me out. I am thankful for my PPD experience because it has opened my eyes to the MANY people who experience mental illness. I also saw the lack of awareness & resources for people who battle with Post Partum Depression or mental illnesses of any form. My hope from this experience is that we can raise PPD awareness, show our support for people who are going through it, and get rid of the negative stigma that comes with PPD.
