Finding Support and Resources in WA
Perinatal Support Washington is also PSI-WA.
Perinatal Support Washington/PSI-WA has been operating in WA state since 1987, and is one of the oldest Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder support chapters in the nation. PSWa’s support groups have been serving women since 1988, and they have been operating a toll-free telephone support line (“warm line”) since 1991. They provide support to WA families state-wide, and are active with other community leaders, organizations, and law-makers to facilitate support for families affected by Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders. They do all of this with the help of our dedicated staff, board members and dozens of volunteers.
