This site has been created to help you understand Postpartum Depression and Prenatal Depression. We’ll provide information regarding types of depression, who it affects, and some resources to get help. Browse around and hopefully you’ll find the tools you need.
THERE IS HELP !
Some women with postpartum emotional disorders recover without incident. Many others need professional help. Postpartum emotional problems are physical and real. A woman can not “pull herself out of it” any more than she can pull herself out of a heart attack.
A woman experiencing any of the symptoms can call our Warm Line 805-541-3367 for support, confidential information and referrals. All the symptoms, from the mildest to the most severe are temporary and treatable. Treatment varies, depending on the severity of the symptoms.
Chat With An Expert
Postpartum Support International hosts free, live phone sessions every week. During these sessions you can connect with other moms and dads, and talk with a PSI expert about resources, symptoms, options and general information about perinatal mood and anxiety disorders from the privacy of your own phone, facilitated by licensed mental health professionals. Click here for more information/details.
Please note: The bridge line will stop accepting callers when the maximum of 15 callers has been reached. Sessions will last approximately one hour. These Chats are not meant to take the place of needed visits to healthcare providers and do not provide therapy.
