About: Postpartum Education and Support is dedicated to the emotional wellness of mothers and provides women and their families with support, encouragement and resources when suffering from symptoms of perinatal mood disorders. The organization also provides resources for healthcare providers and heightens public awareness of perinatal mood disorders.
2016-17 DGIN funding helped pay for the 8-hour national certificate training program “Mental Health First Aid” for volunteers to equip them with essential skills to aid mothers in crisis. Funding also helped provide each client mother with a copy of the book “Beyond the Blues: A Guide to Understanding and Treating Prenatal and Postpartum Depression.”
