Climb Out of the Darkness® is the world’s largest event raising awareness of maternal mental illness, including Postpartum Depression, anxiety, OCD, psychosis and pregnancy depression and anxiety. The event was created and is run by the nonprofit Postpartum Progress Inc. Every year on or near the Summer solstice (the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere), teams of mothers and their supporters gather to climb out of the darkness by walking, climbing or hiking together to help shine the most light on maternal mental illness and raise funds to support the work of Postpartum Progress.
