Together: For Perinatal Mental Health came out of a desire to increase the services available to families struggling with perinatal mental health in Waterloo Region. Together we will increase support systems, educate health care providers, and build a village so that no parent is left behind.
Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder (PMAD) affects 1 in 5 birthing parents. This includes Postpartum Depression, Postpartum Anxiety, Postpartum OCD, Postpartum Psychosis, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Bipolar Mood Disorders. You are not alone. You are not to blame. With help, you will be well.
