Please read about and urge your legislators to support H.B. 3235, Bringing Postpartum Depression Out of the Shadows Act for 2015-2016 that will provide grants through the Health Resources Service Administration (HRSA) to develop screening and treatment programs for perinatal depression and anxiety. Your support helps the coalition meet its and the communities goals.
The Tucson Postpartum Depression Coalition is loaning out the video “Dark Side of the Full Moon” to agencies/individuals interested in a viewing. This documentary tells the detailed story of complications related to pregnancy and postpartum mood and anxiety disorders including information on postpartum psychosis. The full length film (75 minutes) is both brilliant and chilling. For further information about use of the film, please contact Martha McKibben at email@example.com or call 520-241-0765. There is no charge for use of the film, but donations to the TPDC are accepted.
From Maureen Fura, the producer of Dark Side of the Full Moon:
“We are thrilled to announce that while we are waiting to get onto iTunes and Google for viewing, the film is available for individual viewing on reel house. We have heard from many organizers of screenings that they would love to be able to pass the movie along to care providers to view. We hope this is a powerful next step in reaching a critical mass to affect change for mothers and babies. Thank you so much for your support on this journey and most importantly, thank you so much for the amazing work you are all doing tirelessly to save moms. You inspire us and awe us.” Movie Link: http://www.
