Carrie Banks, M.S., PMH-C

Perinatal Psychosis Task Force
Peer Support Programs Director

After the birth of her first child, Carrie was diagnosed with postpartum depression, anxiety and OCD. It was a life-changing experience that led Carrie to switch gears from land conservation work to perinatal mental health. She started out as a PSI volunteer, coordinating under-served areas in North Carolina. Next, she became a founding board member of PSI-NC. Carrie was hired by PSI in 2017, and has since managed several peer support programs.  She is now the PSI Peer Support Programs Director. Carrie lives in North Carolina, USA with her husband, 2 kiddos, two cats and a lazy plott hound named Walter.
