PLEASE CONSIDER JOINING POSTPARTUM SUPPORT INTERNATIONAL, PSI
a member of Postpartum Support International, PSI, I continually reach out to other advocates who help women experiencing
difficulty with anxiety, fear and depression during pregnancy and early motherhood. As a woman who somehow survived PPD/Psychosis, not
once but twice, I understand how a mood disorder can affect not only the mother, but as well her child/children, and
the entire family.
is all about encouraging postpartum research, connecting with fellow advocates, providing support, resources, and contacts
for mothers and their families and reaching out to educate all of society about women's mood disorders associated
with the child-bearing years.
is a non-profit organization and relies on the general public for volunteers, specialists and funding to support the many
programs they offer. Please consider becoming a PSI member; $40 a year is well worth knowing that you are helping
to support PSI's on-going efforts to reach out to every mom-to-be and new mother in communities across America.
way to help is by holding fund-raisers to help support new programs that PSI can only offer if monies become available.

will take each and every one of us to help change the medical mind set now responsible for the present medical care of pregnant
women and new mothers. It can only begin if Melanies' bill is passed. Without research there is no hope for positive
changes in the present medical protocol in the postpartum field. Please join the movement to pass Bill, H.R. 1940!
