Help us raise awareness and reduce the stigma around maternal mental health and perinatal mood disorders. We need your help!
Climb Out of the Darkness® is the world’s largest event raising awareness of maternal mental illnesses like postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety & OCD, postpartum PTSD, postpartum psychosis, bipolar/peripartum onset, and pregnancy depression and anxiety.
Our local Team Oregon-Corvallis Climb Out of the Darkness will be gathering on June 17, 2017 from 9-11am at Walnut Barn, Martin Luther King, Jr. Park and will feature a kid-friendly, stroller-friendly, all ages and abilities "climb" up the hill behind Walnut Barn. You can find our event on Facebook here! Please share and invite your friends to come, too!
Climb Out of the Darkness® is held on or near the longest day of the year annually to help shine the most light on perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. The event features mothers and others across the globe joining together to climb mountains and hike trails to represent their symbolic rise out of the darkness of maternal mental illness and into the light of hope and recovery.
Please check out these videos from Climb Out of the Darkness from the past few years to get a feel for just how inspiring and powerful this event is.
Help us shine the light of hope with our words and our advocacy efforts so that our fellow mothers/parents will receive better information and better treatment, and their new families will get off to the healthy and strong start they deserve.
This year, 75% of the funds raised by our team will remain in our local community and will be used to fund a peer support group, led by PSI-trained facilitators.
