Pregnancy and Postpartum Psychosis Support for Survivors (Moms and Birthing People)

Every Monday, time varies 

We invite those who are no longer in active psychosis and in recovery to join for support, so that you can experience connection and support from other Pregnancy and Postpartum Psychosis (PPP) Survivors. This group is intended for those who are in recovery (no longer experiencing psychosis). Because PPP occurs less often than other perinatal mood disorders, survivors can go their whole lives without meeting another PPP survivor. In response, PSI has created an online peer-to-peer support group for PPP survivors. Like so many mental health emergencies, symptoms and individuals vary greatly, but PPP is generally marked by a loss of touch with reality. This can include symptoms such as mania, hallucinations, paranoia, and/or delusions. If you are looking for more information on PPP, please visit this webpage.

Whether your PPP experience was relatively recent or years ago, you are welcome to attend our free, online peer-to-peer support group. Our online groups are here to help you connect with other parents, talk about your experience, and learn about helpful tools and resources.

If you are still experiencing psychosis or a mental health emergency, we encourage you to reach out to 988.

PSI Support Groups

All of our groups are FREE and virtual. When registering for Sharewell for the first time skip the unlimited offer on the payment page.

What to Expect

Our groups are 90 minutes (1.5 hours) in length. The first ~30 minutes is providing information, education, and establishing group guidelines. The next ~60 minutes is “talk time,” in which group members share and talk with each other. Group members must be present for the group guidelines before joining in the discussion or “talk time.”

Student and clinical observations are not allowed in our group spaces due to confidentiality and creating a safe space

Registration Information

PSI Support Groups are hosted on ShareWell.  Support Groups are split between different “wells.” Click on the registration link above to go to the Well, which includes support groups in each category.

In this new platform, we will no longer have a waitlist function. **We will allow up to 16 group members to enter the group, so please arrive on time to get a spot. Once we reach 16 members OR we have started talk time, the group space will be closed.**
