The Climb Out of the Darkness is committed to bring people together, united, to honor the struggle to overcome PMADs.  We promote awareness, prevention and treatment of mental health issues related to childbearing in every country worldwide. We support moms & dads, community programs and healthcare providers.

My name is Courtney, and I am a mom who had postpartum depression, anxiety and OCD. I was hospitalized for four nights in the psychiatric unit at the hospital where I gave birth. When I was discharged, I was desperate to meet other moms who understand my illness and assumed it would be easy to find play groups for moms with PMAD. Nope! The Climb of of the Darkness gave me my first chance to connect with other people touched by maternal mental illness, and I hope Team Los Angeles can shed more light for moms in the darkness. No one should feel alone in this journey!
