Services for Mothers with Postpartum Depression Supported
Postpartum Progress: Climb Out of the Darkness Local Grants Program
The mission of Postpartum Progress is to create healthier families by raising awareness, reducing stigma, providing social support, and connecting mothers to help for perinatal mood and anxiety disorders like postpartum depression. The Climb Out of the Darkness Local Grants Program, offered by Postpartum Progress, supports local nonprofit organizations that offer direct services to mothers or programs that improve services to mothers. Examples of eligible programs include support groups, or those that lead community network development (building up systems of referral between obstetricians/pediatricians/primary care providers or hospitals and reproductive psychiatry specialists). Funding priorities include in-person support groups, especially in locations not yet served; programs aimed at providing support or services to underserved women, (e.g., teen moms, mothers of color, and low-income women); and provider training. The application deadline is November 20, 2015. Visit the Postpartum Progress website to submit an online application.
