Postpartum Progress is a national non-profit agency raising awareness for maternal mental health and supports women through several outlets.  One of them is through an annual walk (climb in some states) in many locations called "Climb Out of the Darkness."  This year, it will be held nationally on Saturday, 6/20/15; and for Gainesville, FL this will take place at Kanapaha Veteran's Memorial Park. 

The event is free, but you will need to register.  Donations are what allow Postpartum Progress to continue the amazing non-profit work they are doing nationally to raise awareness, create tools for women and providers to use and lend real support for those seeking.  Here is the Gainesville Climb Out of the Darkness event site:

Hope to see you there.
