We get it. As moms who have experienced perinatal mood and anxiety disorders such as PPD and PPA personally and helped others professionally, we can imagine what you’re going through now. We have been there. We are familiar with the pain and darkness of these illnesses, as well as the hopelessness. We also know it gets better, a lot better. Finding the right treatment and support means finding the joy and peace you deserve. If feeling an ounce of hope is what it takes to make it through another day, we want to provide that hope to as many moms as we can. We started Moms Mental Health Initiative because we want to help more moms reach the light at the end of this dark and lonely tunnel. We know how difficult finding the right help can be, so we want to make the task easier. Above all, we want you to be confident knowing that the process of recovery will help you come into a “new normal” and—although it is hard to see—you will gain wisdom along the way. If you need someone to talk to, there are many resources to call on—at any time. We can be a support and connect you to those resources as well.
