This scholarship was created in memory of Cynthia Wachenheim, who lost her life due to Postpartum psychosis. She was an amazing woman who loved life. She was smart, funny, kind, caring, down to earth and wanted nothing more than she wanted to have a family. Unfortunately, our family did not realize the severity of her illness and were unable to help her. There are not enough resources available or education for Postpartum Mental Health. It is the Wachenheim family mission to change that. We are hoping by offering more education to providers, it will be able to assist more families to help keep from this tragedy happening again. We are looking for providers that are truly interested in utilizing this scholarship to not only become educated in Postpartum mental health but also bringing it to their community and educating others and assisting families that need it.
Upon selection by the Wachenheim scholarship committee, recipients are responsible for registering for the training event selected, and the fund will send a scholarship check upon receipt of your registration.
