Motherhood does not care if a woman is Muslim or Christian, black or white, Republican or Democrat, gay or straight, rich or poor. Motherhood is a state of being that transcends all labels and creates a bond among women.
Postpartum depression and anxiety does not distinguish either. For the one in seven women, and the one in ten new dads, who suffers from a perinatal mood disorder, there is no magic formula that confers immunity on some and not others. We are not chosen to suffer because of our beliefs, convictions, lifestyles, or heritage.
Whoever you are, wherever you live, and whatever you believe, no matter what, PSI is there for you, 365 days a year. PSI will support you, offer advocacy, education, and resources, and tell you a truth you can hang onto—that you are not alone and that with help, you will be well.
The ups and downs of the pre-and post-election season cannot change those facts. No matter what, you have our support.
