Episode 39: The 2017 Climb Out of the Darkness

I am so happy that the Climb Out of the Darkness is continuing under the auspices of Postpartum Support International.

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, bipolar/peripartum onset, and pregnancy depression and anxiety. It 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.

If you have questions or would like to lead or join a Climb or become a Climb sponsor, email cotd@postpartum.net.

Thank you, Emily, for talking to us about the Climb and continuing working for this amazing event!
