NEW FILM ON POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION FROM PSI

Postpartum Support International (PSI) has produced a new short film on the experiences of women coping with a postpartum mood or anxiety disorder such as postpartum depression. "Healthy Mom, Happy Family: Understanding Pregnancy and Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders" features four women who have suffered and recovered from perinatal mood disorders. By sharing their stories the women help educate and reassure new mothers, their family members and friends, and health care professionals that postpartum depression is temporary and treatable. The film also includes up-to-date information from experts in the field who share tips on what women and healthcare providers need to know for the effective identification and treatment of mental illnesses related to childbirth.
