Welcome to the Tucson Postpartum Depression Webpage
Climb Out of the Darkness® Walk – June 24th
Join Tucson Postpartum Depression Coalition for a lighted, evening stroll at 7pm on Saturday June 24th as we participate in the world’s largest event raising awareness of maternal mental illnesses. Traditionally held on or near the longest day of the year to help shine the most light on perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, this event features mothers and others across the globe joining together to climb mountains and hike trails, representing their symbolic rise out of the darkness of maternal mental illness and into the light of hope and recovery. Children, strollers, and puppies are welcome. Meet at Tucson Medical Center in the large parking lot off of Wyatt Drive and Glenn Avenue. Registration is not required, but please share this link – all proceeds benefit Postpartum Support International. CLICK HERE
The Board of Directors of the TPDC wishes to extend its deep gratitude for the generous financial support of the Harriet Silverman Fund of the Women’s Foundation of Southern AZ. The 2017 grant award will enable increased engagement with immigrant populations in the Tucson area and continued educational outreach in the community.
Raising awareness of postpartum depression on Mother’s Day
Tara Stanislav was interviewed on Fox 11 this past May to share the work and resources of our coalition. You are not alone – at least 1 in 7 women in America are affected….maybe more.
March for Moms
It was so nice to be with our team of supporters on Sunday April 30th at Reid Park for the March for Moms, alongside the March for Babies. This extraordinary event was put on by the March of Dimes. Thank you to 2020 Mom Project and the National Maternal Mental Health Coalition for creating this opportunity! To see more photos, please visit our Facebook page.
