Our Mom Volunteers
Our support volunteers are all moms who have experienced either a pregnancy or postpartum mood disorder themselves and they are here to offer you:
- Mom-to-Mom support and encouragement, and to let you know you are not alone in feeling this way.
- Information about the symptoms of pregnancy & postpartum mood and anxiety disorders
- Information on what helps women to feel well again
- Information on how to choose a healthcare provider who has experience in treating perinatal mood disorders if you need one.
If you are outside of Illinois and need professional help with pregnancy and postpartum depression and anxiety, here are links where you can find therapists and support groups that specialize in women’s mental health across America and Canada.
If you are a media representative with questions relating to perinatal mood disorders or our work with the Governor to proclaim May is Perinatal Mood Disorders Awareness Month in Illinois please email our director Dr. Sarah Allen at email@example.com or using this form
