Postpartum Progress Inc. (PPI) promotes public awareness of perinatal depression & anxiety, fights stigma and provides hope for recovery. We are aggressive catalysts for change. We want to ensure that as many pregnant women and new mothers as possible will:
- Know enough about all of the perinatal mood & anxiety disorders that they will recognize when they are suffering and be open to treatment;
- Know how and where to seek help;
- Feel safe and comfortable asking for help; and
- Have specialized services and support available to them no matter where they live.
We will accomplish this by creating public awareness materials and support services that are grounded in evidence-based medicine, technology-based, easy to access, easy to understand, interactive and personally relevant. We believe all women should have access to the best information and help, regardless of their socio-economic status or geographical location.
