THE STORY:

Robin Callaway Dianics wrote -

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.

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 20th. Mark your calendars!

Rockbridge Memorial State Park, Columbia MO 10:00am

 

Why Should I Support This Cause?

Because more women will suffer from postpartum depression and related illnesses in a year than the combined number of new cases for men and women of tuberculosis, leukemia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, lupus, and epilepsy.


Because only 15% of the million women who get these illnesses in the US alone each year ever get treated.


Because suicide is one of the leading causes of death in the first year postpartum.


Because there’s very little funding to raise awareness and reduce stigma of maternal mental illness.
