As 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.


PSI 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.


PSI 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.  


Another way to help is by holding fund-raisers to help support new programs that PSI can only offer if monies become available. 


You can also help bring about PSI's goal by encouraging doctors, nurses and specialists in your area to offer their services when becoming listed on PSI's Support List. This will go far to help PSI realize their goal above in some states where no PSI contact or Support Group is presently listed.  


PSI Membership forms are listed on the PSI web site below.




It 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!  Send your letters today: (sample found under "The Melanie Blocker-Stokes Postpartum Research and Care Act"
